    Does anybody can help me to fix one problem.
    I have Linksys Linksys WRT54G v2. So I've upgraded it with DD-WRT v23 SP2 (09/15/06) std.
    Now I got 3 computers connected and one of them (Port 3) using Utorrent - so what I've done:
    Quality of Services Settings:
    Port: WAN
    Packet Scheduler: HTB
    Uplink (0 kbps)
    Downlink (0 kbps)

    Set Port 3 Priority on Bulk and set Max rate to 1M.

    In Services Priority:

    dns Exempt
    html Exempt
    http Exempt
    bittorrent Bulk (Layer 7)
    httpvideo Premium
    Torrent Bulk (Set up ports to 16137~16139, His utorrent using 16138)

    Everything else in QoS are Standart settings!
    Port 1 and Port 2 computers set on Exempt and 100M.
    Our broadband company provide us 20Mb\s

    Anyway it doesn't work properly!!!
    When Port 3 Computer switches his Torrent on, the whole network slows down, and It's really difficult to use webbrowsing. Web pages opens very slow.
    If I disconnect Port3 computer, all network start to work with previouse speed (~10 times faster) in the same time.

    My idea was to set port 3 computer on lowest priority for all services. But looks like it doesn't work with P2P programs.

    Can somebody help me with that, please???

    You can't set uplink and downlink to 0. Have to put something in. The priorities are set this way....LAN ports, Mac, Netmask, services...

    So...WAN, HTB, set the LAN ports to standard, if you use mac make that express, and services premium. Experiment till you find the right one. Remember the QoS is static, and you bandwidth is dynamic that means you need to get your average, Not the best test...Try running a speakeasy test, start there. I don't recommend speedtest for Comcast, the results are way too high.

    I don't think that you understood me well. All network works fine.
    I need just to set low priority on one of the computers which use Torrent. With other words, I wan't this computer(3) use just the rest of internet after we(1+2) use that. I don't want to feel any changes in my internet when that computer (3) works. In that time the internet on computer 3 can be slow as hell (I don't care)
    Otherway when he switches on torrent our internet (computer 1+2) become crap.

    I had same problem of this and was trying to set max. connections for the IP or MAC address, so the user still could use uTorrent to download files but doesn't have too much connections/broadband.

    However, it seems doesn't work. I need to figure out what's the proper commands for controling user connections.

    Yeah, I put Tomato on my rooter, now works fine. :) The c.nt (3rd compuer) is set on lowest priority 5% Download and 1% Upload. And it's working really nice!
    So it seems that DD-WRT have a bug with QoS. :angry:
    Also the priority on P2P programs set on Low, now they don't disturb me.
