Limit internet speed for a specific device or profile?

With XFi I can do some types of limits and controls on a profile, like time and content. I would also like to limit internet speed (bandwidth) for a specific profile. For example, let's say I have a profile named "Kids" with a couple of devices assigned to it, and I would like to limit the bandwidth of that profile (or the devices in it) to 20 Mbs.  Is that possible?

Greetings, @JohnKyle and @user_ba1083! I appreciate you taking the time to reach out to us here on the forums. I hope you are having an amazing day! We certainly understand wanting to have as much control over your network! Based on your question the xFi app can accomplish 1 out of the three tasks. You won't be able to block content with it or put a limit on the bandwidth used per device but you can set the profiles up with bedtime to cut the internet off at a certain time.

 

In order to block content this is will done through the modem by going to 10.0.0.1 and logging in with the information provided on the modem. You would need to go to the parental control section and enable managed sites which will allow you to block URLs and keywords.

 

As for the bandwidth limiting, this is still not available at this time through the xfi app or the modem itself. It's certainly a great idea I'll pass along to the proper channels for future enhancements of the modem and app! If there is anything else we can assist you with, please let us know as we are here for you 24/7!
