MX Group Policy BW Limit

MX Group Policy BW Limit

When I set a group policy bandwidth limit it seems to also limit the amount of traffic that is available locally as well over the wifi network. Is that true? If it is, is there a way to separate it?

So you have applied a group policy to a machine, and it is affecting the machine weather it is plugged into Wifi or Wired (which is correct by design)?  What outcome would you like to achieve that is different?

Yes, I want that as well, but if they are communicating with an internal server they are only seeing 5mbit of throughput, I want to limit internet connection to 5mbit only. 


Client - Internet - 5mbit

Client - Intranet(Internal Servers) - Unlimited

To my knowledge this isn't possible. My recommendation would be to use the "Make a Wish" feature within the dashboard.

Drop the WiFi users into a separate VLAN.  Apply the speed limiting on that VLAN on an MX.  That will limit their Internet performance while not affecting internal server access.

How about you have a limit for the group policy while use traffic shaping configuration under bandwidth then from the traffic shaping under the same group policy, you have a rule for intranet subnet and choose Ignore network per-client limit.
