Possible to limit speed per SSID ?

I did a search and found an old post back from 2013 . I'm trying to limit speed per SSID . I have one UniFi AC installed in an apartment complex. It provides good signal to all four apartments I'm trying to connect . Each apartment has its own SSID .I need each time have a speed limit . I see the answer before was to tag the vlans and throttle them.  Is this still the correct answer with today's unifi software?

 

Thanks

Jeremy

Yes that's true.

You need tagged VLANs, then limit the speed per vlan directly on your router or switch.

I have an edge router x do you know if it has this capability?  We are using a netonix switch to power the unifi AP that is what is between the router and AP.

You can create User Groups with individual speed limits (Settings -> User Groups).

 

Then apply these User Groups to each different wireless SSID in Settings -> Wireless Networks -> Edit -> Advanced Options -> User Group.

Hello @skynetcommky,


Take a look at this.

@SheepishKin  user groups limit per client, not per VLAN.

Yeah I need to limit per SSID because .our situation is apartment 1 for example gets x speed package .I want the entire SSID limited to x speed not each device .

 

This apartment is in the middle of nowhere we had to order dedicated fiber there so we have to be careful with our bandwidth. I only have 50mbps to work with.
