    Hi All,

    I made a "Hughes Net FAP Monitor" script and gave it a little webpage here: http://www.visi.com/~dwinker/fap-monitor/

    This script fap-monitor.sh runs quite nicely on a Linksys WRT54GL router under Tomato firmware. I'm not sure what other routers or firmwares it might work with. It is for use on HughesNet satellite connections, which implement Fair Access Policy (FAP) i.e. the WAN bandwidth is severely limited for over 24 hours when a predefined amount of data is transferred between certain hours of the day.

    This script allows the WAN bandwidth usage to be automatically monitored. QoS settings are applied to limit bandwidth if the FAP limit is about to be reached. When the FAP condition gets safer the QoS settings return to normal.

    Events are recorded in the system log, and details are displayed in a small web page.

    It is similar to (in fact modified from) this script that I found out about on this forum: http://tievolu.googlepages.com/stm-monitor.html

    If anyone finds it useful, let me know.

    The Happy Hacker,
