    Default Untangle with Google Nest WiFi

    I have Google Nest WiFi.
    It works great until 1 client downloads a game from example Steam.
    It takes up all bandwidth.

    Is there a way to solve this with Untangle?

    I have Nest and all my TV is streamed through Youtube TV on a Fire Stick. I'm not having any issues.

    Yes, with Bandwidth Control;

    But this might be a Wi-Fi issue, RF can be finicky

    maybe give us a sketch of your layout?

    I'll give an example when this occurs.
    Wired Nvidia Shield streaming from Youtube
    Wired Windows PC downloading game from Steam

    Youtube actually blocks on Nvidia Shield
    Internet on mobile devices via WiFi are very slow.
    Also on wired devices.

    My setup at this moment:
    FritzBox 7490 bridge mode => Untangle as Router => Google Nest Wifi Router => Netgear Smart Switch => Clients + Wired Google Nest Router part of Mesh

    Without Untangle between everything works until a device takes up all bandwidth.
    I thought adding Untangle could solve this but it hasn't.
    Bandwidth Control is enabled and Steam is put on low priority.
    QOS is enable on WAN side with fq_codel discipline

    Also check if QoS is configured correctly to your actual downstream and upstream bandwidth.

    Config > Network > Advanced > QoS > WAN Bandwidth

    One way or another, this tells Untangle how much Internet bandwidth it has to play with and makes sure it leaves enough for all traffic passing through.

    Already configured it that way.

    How much bandwidth does your ISP specify?
    What flavor of connection is it?

    90 down 30 up
    Qos at 85 down an 27 up
    VDSL2 connection

    It does seem like that should handle things much better.
    What I do is to limit streaming video to 2-5 Gb, video services will discover the limited bandwidth, and throttle back the resolution.

    Then there is a Bandwidth Control rule for large downloads.

    but first, please clarify
    My setup at this moment:
    FritzBox 7490 bridge mode => Untangle as Router => Google Nest Wifi Router => Netgear Smart Switch => Clients + Wired Google Nest Router part of Mesh
    Everything is connected by a Wi-Fi bridge (link)?
