High priority Bandwidth for 10 IP addresses

Hi all

Basically I have a network that is under a bit of strain. It's only a 4 meg line. I need to give priority to all traffic sent and received by 10 IP addresses. These are static IP's 192.168.1.40 - 192.168.1.49.

All other devices are connected with DHCP. So if the static IP's need internet they must be able to use all 4 meg if needed and all other IP addresses must have there traffic queued unless there is bandwidth available.

All the static IP addresses are connected to port 5 and all the other IP addresses are connected to a wireless access point on port 4. Both of these interfaces are slaves of port 2.

Can I use to queues to give all 4 meg to the static IP's by way of IP or by ethernet port?

Thanks for taking the time to read my question!

I cant find anything that will saturate the traffic using the static IP's

I then tried setting up a simple queue with the 10 ip addresses listed and with a limit of 4 meg down 512k up and then adding another simple queue restricting ether4 to 512k down and 128k up. It just seems to halve the traffic.

I have been troubleshooting this for the entire day today. Trying all sorts of address lists and queues from simple to pcq to tearing my hair out. Does anybody have any advise they can give me please.

Am I to believe that this is not possible?? I was able to do traffic shaping like this on a pfsense installation so I have to be believe it is possible on a mikrotik!

Increase priority of your 10 IP addresses to 6 or higher; default is 8. So when they need bandwidth, they will get it. Add your dhcp clients to the bottom, they're is an automated way to do so.
Hope that helps
