Why can't I limit bandwidth for each user?

Is there a way to limit the bandwidth for each user? We all game and each user having access to the entire connection bandwidth is not good for that.

If it isn't an available feature is it going to be added soon?

This would also be very useful in limiting the impact on devices running a backup, such as the iPhone icloud backup.

All: The core firmware is now on version 193 and core apps are ver. 1.20.2. The latter now has QOS (Gaming . VoIP) setting in the core app itself. You can also set priority devices in the network settings as well.

Cheers

BarelyMiSSeD Until a firmware update provides those settings one way to possibly increase overall bandwidth is enabling the 160 MHz setting on the 5GHz side of the Core and put your gaming there if you have not done so already. Enabling priority devices for those on the network at a specific time may also help. Also both Core apps are now at version 1.22.2
