  1. Hi, I have a single network with wired and wireless connection. I would like to control bandwidth usage by the users because some users just download big files while others watch movies on the network.
    how best and how first can I solve this?
    is it possible for me to allocate bandwidth to a specific access point?
    I badly want to find users who are watching movies or downloading big files and control them.
    thank you

    First caveat, there's a difference between Monitoring vs Controlling bandwidth.

    That said, Paessler has good tools for monitoring. It is not clear that they also control.

    They document Four Methods of Monitoring.
