How to throttle WiFi speed on ZTE ZXV10 W300

If you want to provide access like that then best bet would be to buy a cheap router/Access Point that DOES support OpenWRT.

 

Then you could plug the WAN port into your LAN and setup QoS to your hearts content, knowing its not going to upset your main WiFi.  But as others have said, use a password, don't just leave it open.

Is there a way to reduce speed of the internet, while connected to WiFi, on my ZTE ZXV10 W300 ?

The speed needs to be normal when on Ethernet.

I looked at the settings on the web interface, but couldn't provide anything like that I could understand.

I don't mind flashing 3rd party firmware as long as it doesn't require a PC just for it.

 

Thank you for you time.

I dont think you can push 3rd party firmware to this. It seems to be a Gateway (Modem/Router), generally the ISP is the one who has to push firmware to it. Id probably say the stock firmware doesnt have this capability. Most consumer grade Gateways and routers, dont have great QoS options.

I would also need to make sure that only a set of allowed MAC addresses are allowed to connect.

Look for Mac Address filtering in the settings. Just know that its easy to spoof a Mac address and pretty much this is considered a useless feature as a result. You best bet is to use WPA2 with AES encyption and make sure you got a strong password.

No, for Ethernet, I want to ensure that the MAC addresses I set can connect.

Regarding the firmware, this is there image.thumb.png.375610fad8d667c54a97cae2f65f5483.png

Again, MAC addresses can be spoofed. Its a bull shit security feature that does not work. Doesnt matter if your one Wireless or Wired. Mac address filtering should work across all devcies connected to the router. BUT if someone spoofs a mac address on your netowrk, they could connect easily. 

 

 

According to DDWRT, 3rd party firmware. 

 

There are various points where you can see if your device will not be supported even if your router isn't listed here!
A router can not be supported by dd-wrt if:

  • it is based on a Texas Instruments (TI) chipset
  • it is based on a Marvell chipset (maybe in the future?)
  • it is based on a Ubicom chipset
  • it is based on a Realtek chipset
  • it is based on a Broadcom 63xx chipset
  • it is based on a Trendchip chipset
  • it has <2MB flash
  • it has <4MB flash and is NOT Broadcom (any other supported vendor) based
  • it has <16MB RAM and is NOT Broadcom (any other supported vendor) based
  • it has an integrated modem (dd-wrt is router firmware and does not support the modem part)
  • it has VOIP ports (RJ-11)

You can check OpenWRT and tommato but I doubt they would support a modem/router combo.

None of those officially support that router.

Actually, I have no idea on how to check whether or not those criteria is there on my router. Could you tell me how to?

You check the supported device list of each 3rd party firmware. BUT like I said, you have a MODEM/ROUTER dont expect them to support that. If you want a router that supports 3rd party firmware I suggest you buy one based on the supported device list of one of the 3rd party firmware makers. Not all routers support 3rd party firmware in the first place. Thats why you have to go based on the list.

This is for uploading supported firmware from your ISP if they provide it that way but in most cases they push it out to you remotely. Loading third party firmware WILL brick the device in 99% of cases with a modem/router combo like you have.

So from this I won't be able to flash a 3rd party one?

Oh 🤦‍♂️

Are there softwares, like AdGuard Home, that can do this?

The throttling I mean.

The primary router on the network is a Huawei B310s

I found an option to have mutiple SSIDs on that, but couldn't see any QoS option.

Does this router model have a way to set a data transfer speed for only one SSID?

I don't seem to understand most of the terms thrown around in the router settings 😬

This is the QoS menu, does this allow for throttling of WiFi?

See the setting that say WLAN? That indicates wireless. How to set it up to get it to work. Well, thats something that will have to be figured out. Every router/Gateway maker does it diffrently than others.

It actually says VLAN.

Here's all the sub-menus in that.

Looking at it, are you able to understand a throttling option?

Why do you want to do this? If your router supports QoS, that would be a much better way to accomplish what you are likely trying to accomplish (having whatever device is connected via Ethernet have preferred bandwidth). Having said that, QoS should only be used to fix a specific issue you are having. You should not just turn it on because it sounds good. It often causes more trouble than it fixes.

What I need to do is slow down the WiFi to like 53kbps so that it can be a Public network for anyone who comes to the house to use (and not eat up my quota).

I posted screenshots of the QoS menu above.

Is it possible to do so through QoS?

Is there a way on this router to throttle the internet speed of one of the highlighted SSIDs, while keeping the one with the arrow pointed at an unrestricted speed?

  image.thumb.png.f7252ffe70c9f51d093e23272e0c4149.png

 

The details of the router are, as follows;

image.thumb.png.463072117dd553d2e4d80f5c0a576f88.png

 

My objective: create an open Guest WiFi network that doesn't kill my quota.

 

Thanks a lot for helping me out.

I think flashing a 3rd party firmware could be done as it would void my warranty.

Don't make your WiFI public. Instead, give your WiFi a password that you don't mind sharing with friends and family. With a public WiFi, someone could do something illigal with your connection (child porn, hacking, sending threatening messages) and you would be blamed for it.

 

If you don't want people to connect to your WiFi, just don't tell them the password. Making the connection unusably slow is just going to make your technology look bad, and if you are on this forum, my guess is that you are somewhat known as a technology person.

 

The big killer to quotas is steady usage, not bursts, so a neighbor downloading something slowly overnight is going to hurt you more than someone randomly updating an app over your wifi while visiting.

 

I realize I am not answering your question. The answer is that what you are asking for cannot be easily done with consumer network equipment. The correct way to do what you are trying to do would be to buy a managed switch that supports flow-control and then connect a separate access point to a port with restricted bandwidth. There are ways you can possibly trick QoS into doing what you want, but QoS is not exactly designed to do what you are asking, and you will likely struggle making it work as expected.

If you want to provide access like that then best bet would be to buy a cheap router/Access Point that DOES support OpenWRT.

 

Then you could plug the WAN port into your LAN and setup QoS to your hearts content, knowing its not going to upset your main WiFi.  But as others have said, use a password, don't just leave it open.


Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense.
ISP: Zen Unlimited Fibre 2 (66Mbit) + Plusnet Unlimited Fibre Extra. (56Mbit)

If I get OpenWRT will it be able to fulfill my requirement?
