  • A wifi lan network with ip and name br0;
  • A host in wifi lan with ip;
  • A ethernet network interface with ip, name eth0;

How can I limit host A's internet up and down speed, and not limit host A's wifi LAN's speed?

Perhaps with tc, iptables?

It's a bit hard to understand what you want. Can you clarify that a bit? You want to limit up/down speeds of host A, but not "wifi LAN's speed"? – Olli Feb 21 '14 at 10:15
Host A got internet connection from which device ? – Raja Feb 21 '14 at 10:23

From My understanding you want to limit the internet bandwidth of just your system A. The following link might be helpful for you:
