Limit download throughput per WAN


I don’t seem to be able to find a way to throttle bandwidth per wan on a balance one core, unless I’m missing something?
The situation I’m in has 4x wan connections in use.
I need to stop anything more than 5Mbps being downloaded per wan, otherwise the latency shoots through the roof as the adsl connections all struggle to cope.

Balance 30 - Way to actually throttle/limit bandwidth?

Hi @B4BJonathan,

There is an option on each WAN to limit the upload and download, by clicking on the “Details” button next to eah WAN - please see below:-


Hope this helps,



I could be wrong, but I was under the opinion that was just being used for capacity policy’s.
I didn’t think that actually worked to throttle the connection.
I had originally hoped it would however.
Please see the following screenshots for wan settings and bandwidth usage as an example on a balance one core running FW 7.1.0 build 3433.


@B4BJonathan, please use Individual Bandwidth Limit (Network > Bandwidth Control).


Hi @TK_Liew,
Many thanks for your reply.
Individual bandwidth control is described as follows in the help section.
You can define a maximum download speed (over all WAN connections) and upload speed (for each WAN connection) that each individual Staff and Guest member can consume. No limit can be imposed on individual Manager members.

However I’m looking for download limits per wan rather than across all wans.

Is this something you think you’ll add in a future release?
