I have searched the forums and the wiki...
I have made some great progress... but I am stuck. I cannot find a way to limit the throughput on the WLAN when it is unbridged and using a different IP Range.
I purchased special last night, and it did not resolve my issue. I'm not upset as I love DD-WRT and I'm happy to offer the financial support I can to the project.
Here is what I have and what I have done correctly so far:
I used the instructions at the following URL to set up my WLAN separate from my LAN. I have used the iptables scripts on the page as suggested:
I have tested this and it is working great.
I have enabled AnchorFree on the WLAN. It works sometimes, and it fails sometimes. I don't care that much about it, just thought it would be nice to be paid when someone clicks an ad.
I have tried the script generator mentioned in this post: http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=241408 without success.
I purchased and downloaded the special version of DD-WRT and tried the QoS included in it... it did not work (but may be a configuration error on my part).
So here is what I would like help with:
How can I limit the throughput of the WLAN (interface eth1)? (I prefer to use only the features in DD-WRT Special Edition).
What is the Zero IP Hotspot? Is there a configuration guide or any documentation that would help me better understand this feature and how it works.
Is there a better way to achieve this?
I have found many posts asking about this, many with DD-WRT gurus saying to read something... but the link they are pointing to is gone. Maybe it was "cleaned up"?
If I missed something during my search, I would like to kindly ask that someone point me to the proper documentation. I'm not a linux guru, I've used DD-WRT for years... but I am nowhere near an expert.
Thank you in advance
