Anything like "rate-limit" on AP1230's?

We use AP1230's as AP's and as workgroup bridges (WGB's) so we have Cisco on both ends of the RF link. We'd like to control the amount of upstream bandwidth from wireless clients while leaving the download side unrestricted.

IOS on routers supports the "rate-limit" command which can separately control input and output bandwidth. Ideally we would apply that to the F0 interface on the WGB end, thus regulating the traffic before it gets to the RF link. Or, we could apply it on the output of the Dot11Radio0 - it would get into the WGB but still never reach the RF.

However, it appears IOS on the AP1200's doesn't support "rate-limit" on any interfaces OR subinterfaces.

You can limit the 802.11 connect speeds but that affects both directions. We want to leave download traffic wide open but limit upload traffic.

Is there any way to have IOS regulate bandwidth asymmetrically?
