Project Description


I need assistance with setting-up traffic shaping / queues and also traffic prioritization on a MikroTik RB450G router. The network environment is a hotel Wi-Fi with anywhere from 20-200 users at any given moment. I manage several free Wi-Fi networks for hotels. I need those to be optimized for best performance. There also may be some other methods which I can use to improve the network performance more.

I've 5 WAN ADSL connection average 15/1Mbps/WAN and I need better ways to manage users bandwidth.

A better idea of what i'm asking for (need to setup):

1. What are the best ways to use Traffic Shaping / Queues to improve the quality of the public Wi-Fi network and ensure every Wi-Fi client has best possible experience during heavy network usage (e.g. automatically limit and/or distribute available download and upload speeds based on how heavy the network is loaded).

2. Possibly prioritize traffic based on voip, web, videos, p2p

3. Block and/or reduce the p2p usage

4. Any other tricks with Queues / Traffic Shaping that you can offer to improve the quality of the public Wi-Fi networks?

As you can see, I need someone who has experience managing large scale Wi-Fi networks with MikroTik Routers OS 5.8 (what i have). The ideal candidate will have advanced knowledge of RouterOS Queues and experience dealing with bandwidth issues and p2p traffic.

After this project, i will also have more projects that I will need help with - MikroTik multiple WAN load balancing, MikroTik Fail-over, VoIP QoS - so I'm definitely hoping to find a Mikrotik professional who's looking for more opportunities! I have ongoing projects and need help all the time.

Thank you.
