Found most my Guest wifi clients misusing the allocated Wifi for them, I have no control over this but checking on hourly and block those heavy users.

How do I set down/upload quota for my quest users on particular WLAN?

Hello Gobi,

You can try rate limiting to restrict extensive bandwidth consumption to some extent.

See here on how to do it:

ZD GUI --> Config tab--> WLAN --> Click on WLAN --> Advanced options --> Rate limiting.

Check out the screenshot on

this applies to all users on this WLAN and NOT specific user.

hope this help.

I think the question is how to limit the quota not the bandwidth.

Was there any solution to this question. I am also looking to apply download limit per user ?

You cannot set a hard limit/quota per client.

As mentioned already, best you can do is restrict bandwidth to "slow" down a client but that will apply to all users of that SSID.

Or if you just want to disrupt heavy users put lots of breaks into the uptime WLAN schedule. Sometimes I just have creatively evil thoughts!
