Hello Everyone - Does anyone know if the Apple Airport Extreme router has any consumer adjustable settings that would allow us to limit it's download speed for TV show streaming (to save our allocated data)?
I have a new Apple Airport Extreme router. I also have the HughesNet HT1100 modem. My wife and I like to live-stream old seasons of TV shows from Amazon Prime because we can get them for free. However, if we are not careful, we use up all of our HughesNet data allowance before the next billing cycle. We've learned that Amazon Prime is streaming the shows in High Def (HD) if they see a good high speed connection to our TV. We've also learned that some routers have settings that allow us to "limit" the download speed from Amazon Prime, for instance, so that they will stream TV shows in Standard Def (SD) and therefore, use less of our precious allotted data from HughesNet. Does anyone know if the Airport Extreme has any consumer adjustable settings that would allow us to limit it's download speed for TV show streaming? Secondly, I have the same question for the HughesNet modem... any settings I can change to make this happen when we stream TV shows? Thanks!
