    I have a web server that runs my wife's home business. I want people to be able to load pages quickly, so I have that rule set to highest.
    Also, I have some large files (music) that I share with friends.
    I'm trying to set a rule so the music files can be uploaded from the site, but not slowdown(as much) the regular browsing.
    I can't figure out why it won't work...all transfers are still at the highest rule.

    why the bitmap?

    but I see you didn't designate specifically source or destination port. If it's the webserver you want to keep on top, you should be setting a src80 to highest. also, it traverses in topdown. there's no size limitation on the top one. so once it's in, it's in. the lowest 512+ never applies.

    Try setting the top one to 0-512k.

    One trick to making websites load quickly is to offload the graphics to a separate sub-domain, or even to an entirely different domain. Browsers will then load from both (sub)domains simultaneously leaving the (comparatively) large image files unaffected by any delays on the html/js side.

    This is a great use for those $2.99/month cheapie hosting packages. Throw all of the artwork on the host’s server, leave the html/js & logic on your own boxes, and you’ve got a great combination of control & outsourcing.

    I know it’s not QOS settings, but it’ll probably do more for you then super-optimizing your home connection.

    BTW, setting the hosted site up as an automatic fallback is a good use for it. That way if ever your primary, at home, server or connection goes down a dummy site on BillyBob’s Baitshop ‘n Webhosting or wherever can provide continuity, with possibly a note that some services (the ones requiring your backend) are temporarily unavailable.

    Remove the Lowest www rule.

    And set the highest www rule to have 0-512KB.

    Now whenever the traffic is larger than 512KB, it will be classified as your Default Classification.
