I need to reduce the wireless connection speed on my network. I don't want all the wireless devices using all the bandwidth (streaming videos,etc). I do need them to have a connection but I want to keep most of the speed to the wired computers. Is there any easy way to accomplish this? Thanks

You can often enable QoS (Quality of Service) on your router to throttle devices connected to WiFi.

Processor AMD FX-6100 Hex-core, 3.3GHz > Intel Core 2 Duo, Dual-core, 1.6GHz

Memory 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz >  Crucial 3GB DDR3 1066MHz

Graphics Radeon HD7770 + Radeon HD5570 > Intel 3000 Integrated Graphics

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 Socket AM3+ > OEM Latitude XT2 Motherboard Socket P

Storage Seagate Barracuda 2TB SATA 7200.14 > Samsung 64GB SSD SATA 3Gbps

Power Supply Cooler Master Elite ATX 500W > OEM Dell Power Supply 90W

Case Zalman Z11 Plus 4x 120mm fans, 3x 80mm > OEM Dell Latitude XT Case

Any descent router will have QoS option and the interface and options will vary with manufacturer and model. See the documentation of the router and read about QoS, and then configure it.

It will be helpful if you provide a router name that you are using.

Holy bejeebers..............  I just tried to decipher the QOS setup on that sucker (via the Adminstrator's guide) and it is way beyond me.  That is one complicated enterprise router.  I can't help but just wanted to pop in and say good luck.

Is the sonicwall handling wireless or do you have a separate access point connected to it?

 

If the sonicwall is handling wireless then just dedicate a specific IP range/subnet for wireless clients and then create a firewall policy that limits the bandwidth for that range/subnet.

 

If you have a separate access point handling wireless then just create a firewall policy to limit bandwidth for whatever interface the access point is connected to.

A tz170 isn't even close to "enterprise" class. Just an older SOHO firewall.
