You shape traffic coming from a higher speed network and going to a lower speed network. Of course you could shape incoming traffic with various ways (such as IMQ), but what for? Your traffic that comes from a slow WAN connection to a fast LAN network doesn’t need shaping, packets will be distributed very quickly to their destination. You want to shape traffic that goes from the LAN to the WAN so that time sensitive packets get higher priority than bulk traffic.
