If I unticked the share box excess does the bandwidth from offline devices goes to the devices that is online? Without having to manually giving bandwidth to online devices

They should add an option to balance bandwidth automatically/evenly across connected devices instead of balancing it across all devices.

Yes that's right it will, as long as you have share excess enabled as it would just limit the online devices to the bandwidth you gave it otherwise.

If a device is allocated 5 and is using the full excess bandwidth of 100 and another device with an allocation of 5 wants to use 10, will the router throttle down the 100 to provide the other device 10?

Yes I believe it would, by using Anti-BB at the same time this should never be an issue.

Lets say i have 10 devices in qos with 100 down/upload. Each with 10% of the bandwidth. What if 5 devices are offline and I unticked the share excess. Would the 5 offline devices still get 10% or will it adjust to only 5 online devices and it will give 20% to each online devices?

This is what im trying to tell them to add, an option to allow rebalancing the bandwidth for connected devices.

Yea exactly, like a refresh button so it only shows “currently connected devices” rather than every device that is ever connected to a network

It would stick with the original allocations, devices can use data in the background for updates etc all the time so still possible they could use lots of data. If you wanted to reset that distribution then we'll have a delete all offline devices button you can use in the Device Manager.

Why not add a button/option to 'Balance Bandwidth across Connected Devices' and let the user choose choose to just evenly balance the bandwidth automatically and still have 'Share Excess' to handle excess bandwidth. 

 

This seems like a function that most users would enjoy as it gives the router the optimal functionality to ensure EVERY connected device has optimal bandwidth allocations for when they need it even if someone's using the entire bandwidth (assuming the router will throttle the excess bandwidth to give devices their allocated bandwidth).

I'll suggest it to the team, thanks for the idea!
