    Hy there i have a linksys wrt5g ruter with v4.20.7 - HyperWRT 2.1b1+tofu5 firmware and several computers which connects to internet through it. I just want to know if i would like to play online games and somebody would try to download some stuff at the same time on other computer how could i limit that computers speed so that i would get a normal ping? Or in general is there any way to limit computers speed with this ruter with some different firmware or with some different method? Thanks in advance ;-)

    AFAIK with that firmware you can only set priorities of applications/LAN Ports

    as a start, set your PC to have priority over all other PCs. you may need to tweak LAN ports/Device Mac Addresses to have low priorities.

    is there any firmware for the WRT that can do traffic shaping? I don't have a good enough connection to make it worthwhile, just wondering.

    afaik the new Talisman v1.1 when released will be able to do this via the GUI. it should be able to allow d/load/upload speeds per Application/IP/mac address.
