You will have access to router if you have that right to the WiFi network to limit Wi-Fi speed just to increase the internet speed.

How many of you have ever experienced the slower speed of the internet while connected to the same Wi-Fi network? Many of us..right?

Now I want to share with you a case study: 

When I was with my group at a place and connected to the same Wi-Fi network at that very rush, I have experienced the speed issue even while browsing a few lite pages.

I understand that you don't want to give your other users full coverage of speed on the wireless network.

I was wondering the best way to face to this and definitely, our intention was to keep the internet speed up for us and for this reason, the other part of the group should have to be limited internet speed and that was only possible while you have the access to that router terminal.

No matter if you have a mobile device, PC or MacBook Pro, you can do this with any way possible that is connected to the router. But make sure, that you are connected to the general SSID then only you will be able to access router terminal through router login IP.

To limit bandwidth, open router dashboard from your PC and follow this: Login >> Wireless Settings >> QoS Setup >> Add MAC Address & put upload and download limit.

I have taken that step by adding a few rules that actually do the speed management by dividing bandwidth to each of the people and on the first set of people you have to set the higher speed limit to get the highest speed possible.

Later on, the other people who have the minimum bandwidth that you set for them and definitely that was sone with the Mac addresses of those devices.

How do I Limit WiFi speed from MacBook?



If you want to limit the WiFi speed from your MacBook Air then the process will be the same. Just you have to open your Safari browser or other Mac browser to open the router interface through the IP and log in here to continue.

All routers have privacy options, I used this set up to hide WiFi SSID so that the person could not find open network name while scanning for WiFi network.

Hiding the name of your wireless network is the quickest way to protect your WiFi speed but this does not control their download speed. 

There are many bandwidth manager software available to manage network bandwidth.

Find Device IP and Limit WiFi Bandwidth


If you set a data transfer capacity cutoff to those individuals who always download day and night, then you can see an expansion in your browsing and download speed.

But, there is a catch...

Note: Ensure what limit you have settled for them is separated from your limit. Assume your plan is 2MBPS and 500 kbps is set to your friend. However, to you, don’t set any limit for yourself. Now,  other users bandwidth or internet speed is going to be influenced by you as you have controlled it from router system.

Along these lines, it is ideal to set 1.5 MBPS limit for yourself before setting up bandwidth-control. This helps other users to use the bandwidth you have set for them.
