Re: Bandwidth limiting based on time?

Thanks for the reply. I'll look into this further. The manual lead me to believe that when the burst started that it ignored everyone else until the burst finished. Did I mis read this? If other clients can access the AP while the burst is occuring for that one client then it will work for me.

Wanted 2.8.13 CD image or Netinstall
