    I like to know is it any options to limit upload speed for all connected computers in Linksys WRT54G,becouse when all computers run(one wit bittorent,second with edonkey and msn messenger..) looks like that connection is overload with uploading and connection speed is going down.I have 1024/250 adsl connection and I like to limit upload speed to 200.

    not in the web interface no, it is possible to write a firewall script that would suit your requirements though

    You can create your own firewall scripts with "Firewall Builder". Get it at

    that would be a good place to start, but fwbuilder does not have advanced QoS capabilities, which are necessary for the functionality Rudi is requiring. i'm sure if he has a look, he will find what he is looking for, there are plenty of examples to use; either here or at Hyperwrt's forum

    I'am install Firewall Builder and I like to made like you say,but this is mystery for me.Thibor firmware work great for me,only isue with my children,becouse some ot them run messenger,utorrent the other one do the same and the upload speed is overloaded . I don't know anything about witing script or programming,so it's better that I just leave this alone :sadbye:

    Now I'am try the "dvaskelis" suggestion settings and will see.
    I will also look for script,like you say Thibor,maybae I find something :cheerup:

    I would just like to add that messenger will not slow down your connection. Simply loading a webpage will generate more traffic than chatting for an hour. Ok, maybe not quite but you get the idea. ;)
