Spotting and Banning Network Abusers
How to identify and block abusive network behavior, whether from "cybersquatters" (people who use your network for excessive periods of time) or "bandwidth hogs" (people who soak up more than their fair share of bandwidth).
First be sure that QoS/Throttling is enabled on your Sputnik-powered devices.
You can preempt many network abuses (such as peer-to-peer file sharing) using the QoS/Throttling setting from your Sputnik-powered device's settings page. This feature is available for Sputnik-powered DD-WRT firmware running Sputnik Agent version 126.96.36.199 or higher.
If basic QoS management and bandwidth throttling is available for that Sputnik-powered device, you will see a "QoS/Throttling" checkbox.
For more information, see the online documentation chapter titled "Quality of Service (QoS) and Bandwidth Limits".
Also, be sure guest expiration interval and blackout period are set.
You can limit the amount of time users spend on your network by setting a guest expiration interval and guest blackout period. For more information, see the online documentation chapter titled "Limiting Freeloaders".
