I believe this would be the right place to ask this, if not, then I do apologize.
I have 6 Computers, 3 Cellphones, and a PS3 all on my home network and they all share a 20Mb/s cable internet connection. Is there a way that pfsense can automatically throttle down certain devices that are using large amounts of bandwidth if another device tried to use the internet as well? For example I do a good amount of downloading, during the day its not an issue, but at night we like to watch Netflix, and I have to manually throttle my downloads through Transmission(BT Client). Is there a way that I could configure pfsense to give me all the bandwidth I want solong as no other devices are trying to use over a set amount themselves. Like if I'm downloading at the full 20Mb/s, but then my wife goes to watch netflix, pfsense could automatically throttle my bandwidth so she can watch netflix without constant buffering, then when she's done, my connection will automatically go back up? but like I said, only if those other devices are trying to use over a set amount or something similar, I donít want my connection so be throttled ever single time someone goes to check their Face book.
My current hardware config is;
Modem->pfsense box(1WAN 1LAN)->Dlink DIR655(AP)->
I have pfsense set to handle everything, the dlink is configured as an access point only, but every single device in the house connects through the dlink.
