I just started a WISP however, I am now using the cnPilot R201's for existing satellite clients when their current router goes out, this way I can manage through cnMaestro. I see I can view the configuration, but how can I actually change the configuration. My understanding when I purchased this router was that we can remotely configure, and take advantage of some traffic shaping properties for specific devices. Example customer has 3 smart TV's and a limited amount of bandwidth, so I want to first monitor these devices and see how much bandwidth each are pulling and then go in and restrict them to a managable speed that will still allow them to operate without sucking up all the data. Plus I would like to set one default profile for these customers and then further customize individual clients, remotely. How, been looking for instructions.
R201 Set Up on a Viasat Modem, How do I control and set up configurations remotely
I will get back to you in a day .
cnPilot R201's can be managed remotly .
For configuring R201 you can check help(https://cnmaestro-help.cloud.cambiumnetworks.com/2.0.0/index.htm#UG_files/WiFi/Profile%20Based%20Configuration.htm%3FTocPath%3D_____12) topic under Configuration: Wireless LAN . If you still need more clarification , please reach out to us.
Pushing Rate limit configuration from cnMaestro has some issue , but you can do the same from device GUI. Please see attached screen capture of GUI for limitig Upload/Download traffic to 10Mbps for client 192.168.11.175.

You can use user-defined overrides in cnMaestro to configure rate Limit to a particular client .
DBID_QOS_ENABLE=1 --> Enables QOS
DBID_QOS_DOWNSTREAM=1024000 --> Global rate limit for router
DBID_QOS_UPSTREAM=1024000 --> Global rate limit for router .
SwQosRule=RuleName=uploadlimit,SrcIP4=192.168.11.175,Drop=no,Re_Ratelimit=10240;RuleName=downloadlimit,DestIP4=192.168.11.175,Drop=no,Re_Ratelimit=10240 --> Upload and download limit for client 192.168.11.175 at 10Mbps.
RuleName -- > Can be any name, only characters allowed are , Alphabet, digits and uderscore(_).
Re_Ratelimit --> rate limit for rule in kbps.
SrcIP4 --> Give client IP to rate limit on upload.
DestIP4 --> Give client IP to rate limit on download.
