    Hello everyone, let me start by saying I'm novice to routing etc.
    I flashed my little linksys with latest RAF, added some qos rules etc ... up to there all goes well. Just that QOS doesn't work ... I know wrong word, doesn't react (all unclassified) since for as much I understood, it shapes on wan. And there is my problem. My linksys doesn't do the wan since I have to use a (rubbish) router from my ISP that is locked down.
    I have a wimax link 2 Mb symmetric (more 2 down and 512 up) and I'd like to balance our internal usage since we are 3 using it. The idea is not to limit someone but at least to 'balance' all a bit so we all share at best what we have as bandwidth (let's says like load balancing)

    Since shaping doesn't work on lan I was wondering if following would be possible (if already explained thanks to point my nose, I'm lost after several hours reading)

    wimax antenna -> wimax router ( -> linksys ( -> lan/wlan

    wimax router is locked down and I can't change nothing there : it has dhcp but I force every machine internally to a fixed ip

    linksys : set wan port to lan and wimax router is on that wan/lan port
    ports 1-4 used to machines and other little switch
    wifi to machines

    every machine/switch have been set to fixed ip with router and dns to + as alternatives.

    Is there a way via routing to make qos work ?

    My imagination would think of the linksys ports 1 to 4 and wifi as a bundle that transits via qos to that wan/lan port .... and somehow qos could shape on wan/lan port (which it can when it is set as wan) disabling wan and 'bridging' it as lan seems to also disable qos there which is a pitty.

    Any solution to make this work ???

    thanks for your time, patience

    little up

    I know this isn't nice to do but since no one answered. Is there a way ?? Or might this be an idea for a future release ? Guess I'm not the only one in this situation.

    thanks for your time and answer

    The solution is get a dedicated modem from them or extract you log in and replace it worth another modem (like most sky customers).

    Qos is wan only.
