    I have a problem when I active the QoS on my WRT54G rev1.1
    My download falls down from 1,2 Mo/s to 400-600 Ko/s on the same web site with the same file.
    I tested with Satori 4, Alchemy 6.0rc3, Alchemy 6.0rc5a, Alchemy 6.0rc6, Alchemy Pre 7a and it's always the same.
    Do you know it's a known bug in Sveasoft firmware ? Or maybe a bug in my configuration ? Or my routeur ?

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Your download rate is set too low

    Your download rate is set too low in your QoS settings (on the Administration page for Satori). I set the download rate to be exactly what my ISP advertises (5000 kilobits per second), and I get 4500 kbps when I tested it.

    The guide says this number should be 80% of the total bandwidth, but most ISPs give you way more download speed than you need, so I see no reason not to set it to 100%. Upload settings should be more conservative, as ISPs don't give you very much, unless you want to spend > $200 per month for their "business" packages.
