    i need to qos traffic, so i configured a bridge on zeroshell between 2 eth, but then i need to limit broadcast mac add on the bridge but zeroshell firewall lets me limit only source mac not destination mac, so i have to setup zeroshell as a router to limit layer 2 broadcast, but i loose the qos bcoz it only works on bridge. any suggestions??? plzzzz

    It is not true that QoS works only in bridge mode. The QoS queues are directly attached to the network interfaces and therefore they work indipendently from the forwarding mode (bridging or routing). For this reason you can use the routing to limit the layer 2 broadcast packets and use the traffic shaping at the same time.
