Speed limit on Ubiquiti devices

Suppose we need to limit the speed on the client antenna.
Accordingly, it is in the station mode and is connected to the access point.

For restriction, we go to the web-based antenna management interface, open the Network tab, change the Configuration Mode: to Advanced, which will bring more parameters that you can configure .

At the very bottom, click on Traffic Shaping, check the Enable checkbox and specify the desired speed limit for WLAN0 or LAN0.
For example, you need to limit the reception speed to 5Mb/s and send up to 512Kbps, for reliability, we’ll specify a limit for both network interfaces, where Ingress is specified for WLAN0 5120, and for LAN0 512, respectively, for Egress, vice versa, WLAN0 – 512, and LAN0 – 5120, burst is left unchanged, that is, 0.

To apply the changes click below Change and then above Apply, after which the antenna configuration will reboot.

On the access point, alas, you can not limit the speed for each client, if you do the above settings (in reverse order), then the overall speed for all clients will be limited. In this case, you can cut the speed, for example billing, by turning on the Advanced tab Client Isolation in the Advanced tab so that clients do not see each other on the network and do not exchange traffic.

Done.
