limit bandwidth wifi internet connection speed

Now you can control/limit your internet speed (wifi connection) bandwidth all by yourself for all kind of devices like your pc, laptop, mobile phones like android or iphone or ipad or ipod. Just you need to have is TP-link router or similar kind of router that supports bandwidth control feature.

I guess you all are facing facts that whenever there are too many users on your network, usually through wifi connection, you will experience a drastic drop in internet connection speed as it is splitted among the users. So, what if there is a way to control other’s internet speed or limit the wifi connection speed, so that you may not experience so great loss of internet speed even though the number of wifi user increases. Excited!! yes get excited to live so.

Lets’ get started with the tutorial then.

Step to limit wifi speed or bandwidth from TP-link:

  1. Login to your router
    If you have not changed anything in your router then following default value may apply:
    Default ip :
    Username: admin
    Password: admin
  2. Go to–> Bandwidth Control
  3. Go to –> Bandwidth Control–>Control Settings and¬† tick on ‘Enable Bandwidth Control’ option and set Egress Bandwidth: 100000 Kbps and Ingress Bandwidth :100000 Kbps and click on Save
  4. Go to –> Bandwidth Control–> Rule list
  5.  Click on Add New
  6. Set the ip range that you want to limit bandwidth for.
    In this case, we will set it to but if you want to limit only one device ip then set it to (assuming your device ip is
  7. Now set Egress Bandwidth (uploading speed) and Ingress Bandwidth (downloading speed) in Kbps
  8. Click on Save

  1. Hi,

    I wonder if you can help with this scenario.

    We run a painting and photography holiday business in France which means that for 6 weeks each year we have a house full of guests. I have just changed my Wifii to a 4G Hotspot as, being out in the middle of nowhere, copper wire gives us only about 1 Mbps.

    The new 4G system gives me apx 70 Mbps download and 30 Mbps upload but the contract limits me to 50 Gb usage per month. This is OK for 46 weeks of the year but, during those 6 weeks when the house is full, I don’t want our 50 Gb limit to be exceeded because guests are downloading movies or playing games online, etc.

    My main PC is right next to the Hotspot and an ethernet cable connects the Hotspot to a TP-Link router, therefore my connection is completely separate from everyone else in the house.

    So, my question is, because I don’t know the individual identity of devices used by guests, is it possible to restrict the bandwidth for EVERY device using the TP-Link router during those six weeks?

    Thanks in advance
