Thanks for your reply..I want to restrict the BW on VLAN only...I need configuration/procedure for the same.

If you want to limit the bandwidth on the VLAN then the packet shaping should be at the switch.

One of my WLC interface connecting directly to firewal so i can`t do any thing on switch level..I am looking for solution to configure BW restriction on WLC itself.

funny how 2 engineers can read a comment and think of it from 2 persepctives ...  although i think he wants to limit bandwidth not disable rates ... I ll give you 5 points if im wrong !

How about if you attach your SSID to, say, 802.11b and enable 1mb data rates and disable the rest?

thats thinking out of the box BUT .. now you will have 20 clients

flooding the medium with 1 meg frames and channel utilization will go through the roof!

Depending on your setup, if you have a router on the outside of your firewall (handling internet connection).  You can NAT the traffic from your anchor controller to a different outside ip address and then rate limit that ip address on the internet router.

Why hasn't anyone mentioned per-user bandwidth contracts on the WLC?

It is downstream only, but that is typically what most people are concerned about with guests anyway....

configure a basic class-map/policy-map to police the bandwidth on the gateway interface.

For example:

access-list 10 permit


match access-group 10



Policy-map POLICE


police 1000000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop

interface vlanX

service-policy output POLICE

This would police traffic to 1 MB for subnet
