Bandwidth management

Hey folks.  Does anyone know if it is possible to set bandwidth restrictions via MAC address using the Hitron Router with 4.5.8.38T5 firmware?  I want to limit up/down speeds to certain devices in order to maintain good streaming quality on my FireTV device. Thanks!

No, I don't think it is. You need to put your Hitron gateway into Bridged Mode and use a router which supports QoS (Quality of Service).
