    I have set up a guest network with my airport extreme, however i would like to limit the up/download speeds of the guest users. i can't seem to find an option in airport utility and when i use a search engine i only find how to "Make you're internet faster!" ads and tips.
    Any help would be awesome, thanks

    Does your guest network have a required password? If not, your neighbors could be using it.

    Yes the network has a password
    my intent is to have my guests use a slower speed for upload and download, is this possible?

    Ahh, I see. I misread your OP. No, I don't think it's possible with an AirPort. Now if you had a Linksys with 3rd party firmware, maybe. Also, why would you want to slow down guests? I doubt they'll be torrenting the entire series of Seinfeld on your connection.
