Mikrotik for the implementation is a wireless LAN router that is widely used by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) in order to share the internet connection. The Wireless Technology which is widely used by ISP is a hardware and software that is in linux base. In the implementation it can be applied in a windows application that called Winbox. By using Winbox the ISP can remotely the application system of your internet connection from long distance. On the client side we can plan bandwidth management as we need according to the situation of our client, of course you must have winbox account that can be requested from your ISP.
There are various ways to do the internet bandwidth management that you got from your ISP. Here I will show you a simple way that does not spend a lot of resources from the mikrotik router. To limit the Internet bandwidth on mikrotik winbox on the computer client is required absolutely, to avoid bandwidth waste and monopoly of the internet connection at any time.
Limiting bandwidth using mikrotik winbox much more efficiently than do the limitation from each computer client. To limit bandwidth of the internet connection on the computer client you only need to know the IP address on each computer client of the network of lan or wlan.
Pc client 1 : 192.168.1.17
Pc client 2 : 192.168.1.16
Pc client 3 : 192.168.1.15
Pc client 4 : 192.168.1.16
Pc client 5 : 192.168.1.20
Pc client 6 : 192.168.1.21
After you know the ip address of the computer client, then we will set up the list of Simple Queues on the Winbox. First you must login to the Winbox and then will appear as shown as the left picture below. On the main menu click on Queues tab, the window of Queues List will appear as shown as the middle of the picture below. To create a bandwidth limitation on each client, click on the + button at Queues List, and then the New Simple Queue window will appears as the right picture below.
Description of the number at the right picture above
- Number 1 is the name of the computer client that you want to limit the bandwidth. It's up to you give any name that you can manage by yourself.
- Number 2 is the IP address of the computer client that you want to limit the bandwidth
- Number 3 is the maximum of download and upload speed limit
After completed the three variables above and then click Ok. At the window of the List Queues there will be a new simple queue that you created. Do it in the same way at client computer other that you have and you want to limit the bandwidth. If you much more computer client, The value of the maximum limitation of download and upload speed should be getting smaller. It depends on the total bandwidth that you buy from the ISP.
Once again create a simple queue for check the total usage bandwidth all of the clients that you have. If you have a dedicated speed is certainly easy to divide bandwidth of the internet connection. However, if the bandwidth speed is "up to" you must give a higher bandwidth value of the calculations as normally by bandwidth division. For more details let's see the above video!
