If you do not plan to share network with many users, you probably do not need to set rate limits. However, if you notice speeds slowing due to heavy use, you might want to set upload rate limits, download rate limits, or both.
There are two ways to rate limits for the current network:
- IP- BASED : rate limits based on the IP address.
- MAC-BASED : rate limits based on the MAC address.
