How do I disable wireless bandwidth shaping?

Last Updated: September 8, 2015

BrightSign Network and Simple File Networking

If you're setting up the player for wireless with BrightSign Network or Simple File Network publishing, you can disable the limits during the Unit Setup process in BrightAuthor:

  1. Once you've enabled wireless using the Enable Wireless option, click Advanced Network Setup.
  2. Select the Wireless tab.
  3. Under Rate Limit Network Download Traffic, select the Unlimited download rate option for both Outside content download window and During initial downloads. You won't need to set the option for During content download window unless you've chosen the Limit content downloads option in the Unit Configuration tab.

Standalone and Local File Networking

If you're setting up the player for wireless with Standalone or Local File Network publishing, you can disable the limits by editing the setup.xml file, which is created once you complete the Unit Setup process in BrightAuthor. To disable the limits, open the setup.xml file with a plaintext editor (e.g. Notepad, TextEdit) and locate the following tag:

  <rateLimitModeOutsideWindow>default</rateLimitModeOutsideWindow>

Change the value from "default" to "unlimited":

  <rateLimitModeOutsideWindow>unlimited</rateLimitModeOutsideWindow>

Note: Depending on the speed of your network, if the wireless is not throttled, you may see video playback issues during content uploads to the player.
