    Hey all,

    Just started using Teddy Bear Tomato and absolutely loving it. I was a dd-wrt user for years but do not foresee ever going back.

    I have QoS setup and am using 7 classes. My default is Lowest, and I have exactly two things going into the Highest queue, Ventrilo and Teamspeak (L7 matched) ... when neither of those are running on any of the computers on my network, I am still seeing some traffic going into the Highest queue:

                kbit/s    KB/s   
    Highest     12.33     1.50     4.86%

    Yet when I click on it to see the details, there are zero matches.

    Can anyone tell me what this is? I know it's not much, but it's bugging me. Some kind of keepalives or something maybe? Is there something (or things) the classifier catches by default and classifies as Highest?

    Are any of the "prioritize" flags checked on under Basic Settings? They all fall under Highest if checked.

    Ah ha! Yes, ACK is checked. That explains it. Thank you so much :)
