QoS Router settings help to limit teens bandwidth
I am a Cox customer for 30 years. Have Premiere Internet 150/10 and happy with it,
I am trying to configure settings on my router and posting here since what I want to limit is the Cox Intenet so I am hoping some tech minded folks can help me.
My Internet works well - we have a few people in the home - one a teen who would stream to his hearts content if we let him.
We have a Motorola 6180 cable modem.
Router is an ASus 68U which is T-Mobile branded and called an AC 1900
My goal is to limit him and his Roku box to a stream of no more than 1 GB to 1.5 GB per hour
On the router there are QoS setting which I enabled.
Then there is another page with Individual settings and I can select his Roku box by MAC address and it fills in the port and stuff. The heading looks like this
Source IP or MAC
|Priority||Add / Delet|
Under the transferred heading there are 2 boxes with a squiggly line between them ~ so box ~ box in KB
Any suggestions as to what figures to put in there to limit him? And if you could also explain it to me I would be most appreciative.
And would it work for what I want to do?
There is a video out there about unlocking TMO firmware to use straight Asus configs or even flashing DDRT -- and if it has been updated for the new firmware may consider giving it a try. It would be a big project for me since, although I am pretty technical, this is not my forte.
I took a look at flashing dd-wrt onto the TMO version of the RT-68U. I wouldn't attempt it unless I was very experienced in flashing routers. You not only have to flash the firmware but flash / downgrade the bootloader first. The current version of the bootloader won't let you flash anything but TMO versions of the firmware, you can't even flash the stock ASUS firmware with that bootloader. Not for the faint of heart and a chance of bricking your device for good.
