    Here's the bandwidth control section of the userguide:


    Here's some text from there explaining how to create and apply a bandwidth setting to a role.


    Configuring a Bandwidth Contract in the WebUI

    In the WebUI, you can first configure a bandwidth contract and then assign it to a user role:

     1.Navigate to the Configuration > Advanced Services > Stateful Firewall > BW Contracts page.
     2.Click Add to create a new contract.
     3.In the Contract Name field, enter BC512_up.
     4.The Bandwidth field allows you to define a bandwidth rate in either kbps or Mbps. For this example, enter 512 in the Bandwidth field, then click the drop-down list and select kbps.
     5.Click Done.

    Assigning a Bandwidth Contract to a User Role in the WebUI

    Now that you have a defined bandwidth contract, you can assign that contract to a user role.

     1.Navigate to the Configuration > Security > Access Control > User Roles page.
     2.Select Edit for the web-guest user role.
     3.Under Bandwidth Contract, select BC512_up from the drop-down menu for Upstream.
     4.Select Per User.
     5.Scroll to the bottom of the page, and click Apply.

    Hi James,


    Only this way can do ? any other way to do with SSID . Let say I have created 5 SSID for our Wireless . there 2 or 3 I want to control Bandwidth. It is possible? User role I am not too clear and current we are not creating a lot user roles.
