Hi all -
We’ve got a Balance One that for now uses only one WAN connection, recently switched to a 100Mb/s symmetrical fiber service.
We’re experiencing problems with the line becoming saturated due to heavy up&downloading of multi-gig media files from a few different computers, as well as the normal web / email traffic of our staff. When it saturates we eventually lose all connectivity.
I’d like to find a way to limit the bandwidth used by any single connection to either a fixed value or a percentage. I’d guess 95+% of all traffic is web-based (port 80/443) so per-protocol or per-port limits would be pointless. I can’t find anything in the Balance setup that would seem to help. Many of the ‘offending’ computers are visiting clients who are DHCP-assigned, so a solution that worked on the range of DHCP addresses would probably be workable.
Any thoughts on how the Balance One could help us out?
