DSL wi fi
« on: December 12, 2015, 01:29:43 PM »
Hello,

is there any tool that can throttle down your DSL (wi fi) connection to whatever bandwidth you want?

say you have 6 megabit per second....but want to throttle it down to say 120 Kylobit per second......about 60 times less bandwidth
right...

what is that tool?

thanks

V

Hi Rich,

oh right i see. So "Tc" is part of another extension in tinycore.

right.

See, i was hoping to use tinyore with wi fi here....the USB wi fi dongle here is a "BT voyager 1055" so do you think your stock drivers would work with it?

yes, tc is just a tool to set up some rules that effect the kernel.

google turned up a lot of hits for ndiswrapper and also mentioned that it uses a broadcom chipset - what does lspci and/or lsusb show?
