Bandwidth allocation


Recommended Posts

Hi so I've been trying to limit my bandwidth on using the allocation section. Now I've tried all differant settings and the download seems to limit as intended but upload is always max no matter how I try I've reset th pie distribution for upload then download even limited the congestion control down to 1% and always the download is limited as intended amd the upload is still max. Any ideas why this is? I've been using ookla speed test for testing

Hi yeah I have them both set off aswell with both upload and download restricted in th bandwidth pie chart down to 1 for both of them then go to test with the speed test,  the download is restricted yet upload pulls to max though I've noticed the test starts off with the upload slow then just bursts up to max speed after a few seconds really strange

Bt pppoe congestion control at 1% on download and upload only the download is limited upload runs at max speeds tho if I set at at 100% for each its runs Instantly at max speeds then when I limit it the upload starts like its limited then bursts through to max speeds after a few seconds i take it this must be a bug or something in the software?

Yes pretty straight forward, make sure the BT Hub has the PPPoE details entered, then remove them from the XR. Go to the XR System Information page, copy the WAN IP shown there then access the hub and put that into the DMZ and you should be good to go
