Where can i decide the bandwidth per IP or user in the Hivemanager?

We got a 100/100mbit optic connection, but we would like to limit each user to max use 5mbit.

In situations where this is required I simply use a per IP bandwidth shaper on my external firewall. Haven't tried in anger to achieve this through HiveManager.

But an AP also gets an IP. How can you control it, so the AP wont be limited by the bandwidth limitation?

You only assign the bandwidth restriction to the IP range in question. Which, if your network is configured correctly. Will be on a different subnet your clients.

It is possible to configure a  'Rate Control & Queuing Policy' that is defined within a user profile. This applies to each user who is connected to this UP.

Here are 2 images of our QoS settings. Could you help me specify what to do, to limit the bandwidth per user?
Right now we have 100/100, but im thinking of limiting each user to 7/7 maybe?
