Hello all

I have what I think is a simple Question

I have a EchoLife HG520c home gatway

In the wlan setup I can set the speed /rate of the wireless signal feom 1Mbps to 54Mbps.

My question is.

 

If I set it to 1 does that set it at 1 for each individual wireless connection or a total of 1 for every connection to share?

 

I have a trailer park with only about 2Mbps service and some people abuse it. I set it to 1 and I am connected with an Ethernet cable so I still run at the full capacity.

 

I hope this makes sense

 

Thank you in advance for your asistance

 

Warm regards from Oaxaca Mexico.

1mbps would be the total of the sum of the connections...

After looking at the description of that setting in the manual, I agree. There was a slight chance that maybe the router had a feature that would limit the throughput for each client connected to the router, but I doubted it.

I will note that WiFi "speeds" are a function of how close you are to the router. So, if you set the throughput (aka speed) to 1 Mbps, there will be some people who will get substantially less throughput (aka speed) than 1 Mbps. Also keep in mind that 1 Mbps is a maximum theoretical throughput…in reality even if you are in the same room as the router, you likely will not get 1 Mbps.
