PFSense 2.0 – Limiting users Upload and Download Speeds by Limiting Bandwidth

PFSense is by far one of the best gateway solutions out there in my opinion.  I am going to show you one of the many reasons why I think this product is best of breed and that is the Bandwidth limiter. PFSense uses BDS as it base, it has included the DummyNet software project which allows you to  simulate/enforce queues and bandwidth limitations, delays, packet losses, and multipath effects, it also implements a variant of Weighted Fair Queueing called WF2Q+. Now that may sound like a lot of reading to get up to speed with but I assure you it is quite easy to set up and maintain, let me show you how.
