Troubleshoot Rate Limits and Quota Control

By default, Mikrotik routers are configured with FastTrack firewall rules. These rules cause packets to bypass queuing, causing Zima rate limits to stop functioning. To correct the problem, follow these steps:

  • Log in to your Mikrotik router.

  • Go to IP > Firewall

  • In the Rules and Mangle tabs, check for fasttrack rules.

    Disable and remove them. The dummy rules can’t be removed, that is normal.

  • Restart your router.

Your rate limits should now take effect.
