    I did some test it seen to work fine, but it's hard to tell cause there is no real way to know the switch is actualy doing something. Any way to get some info on it?

    On the "The Maximum Bandwidth provided by ISP" field do i put the theorical maximum (atm) or real one?

    And for exemple if i want to configure an application used by a few user that connect to the internet on a server on port 1234, the only entry i have to add is "TCP 1234~1234 [Upstream]->High" right? no need to put the "downstream" one

    and sorry again about noob question :p

    A few of us have that question about "maximum bandwidth" in the WAN port in another thread....I'm curious about that also...and haven't noticed any performance different in leaving that at 512...or bumping up to something crazy like 51200.

    On the 1.3.2 firmware it definitely made a difference as to what speeds you entered into the maximum bandwidth boxes. The weights for the weigthed round robin load balancing were based on the ratio of the speeds entered for WAN1 vs. WAN2.

    If say, you had connections A and B and A was 10 times faster than B at 1000 kbps. So you enter 1000 kbps for WAN1 and 100 kbps for WAN2. If you then began a continuous ping of a site 10 out of every 11 pings would go out WAN1.

    If for some reason like bandwidth costs, you wanted to use connection B more than A, you could enter 100 kbps for WAN2 again, but this time enter 10 kbps for connection A on WAN1. So even though connection A would be much faster if you pinged that site again, 10 out of 11 pings would go out on WAN2.

    I don't think works this way. In fact I haven't really understood what is happening with the bandwidth management feature. The speeds I entered were the maximum throughput speeds the DSL lines would ever see, but I don't know that it makes much difference.
