Thanks AtroposX, I have several zeroshell routers with similar setups and all works great. This is the only one using net balancing, and it seems to interfere with the QOS functionality.
If you have a moment, I would love to hear more specifically what you mean by “police” and how that would be done.
I understand what you’re saying, now, but in terms of the end user experience, there is a point in queuing some incoming packets on the router. In this case, there are many users at a camp, and the office and admin needs have to be prioritized over the campers’ Facebook browsing. By putting all the campers in a 1 Mbps. incoming queue, the 3 Mbps. pipe does not get bogged down for other users. At least, that’s how it appears to work. Obviously, putting all traffic in a throttled queue would be pointless.
Are you suggesting that if I have a symmetric WAN connection, say 3 Mbps up and down, and I want to place some users in a queue that limits their upload speed to 512K, that I cannot do it with a rule on the WAN port?
Thanks Fulvio. I hadn’t thought to look for that. Certainly better than nothing.
