Setting up Throttling

Once a customer has reached their cap it is possible to throttle their connection to a slower speed.



1. Mikrotik Rate Limit:

In order to achieve this
Click    => Network
            =>Gateway Details
Under Traffic Shaping Bucket 
Click     => Table View

Search for the bucket you would like to change
Click     => Radius Groups button to get the console

Go to RADIUS => Group Reply
Review the list to find a throttled group that will give the customer the desired throttled speed

Click    =>Add at the bottom to ensure that a new group called “(name chosen)_throttled” is created

2. Framed Pool:

Should you have a Framed-Pool for throttled customers you will need to add another attribute. This time "Choose from existing groups" and make sure to assign this attribute to the newly created throttled bucket “(name chosen)_throttled”

Now there will be a new group called “(name chosen)_throttled” created with two attributes:

You will then need to assign this to the bucket that you have just changed. 

In order to achieve this
Click    => Network
            =>Gateway Details
Under Traffic Shaping Bucket 
Click     => Table View
Search for the Product
Click     => Radius Groups
