    My ISP is providing two things, an ADSL modem and a TV box (contains a hard drive and can be plugged to the Tv).
    I'm not using the "router part" nor the wifi of the ADSL modem, it is used as a bridge and behind it I've a linksys wrt54gl Tomato powered as you can imagine.

    The Tv box is linked to the ADSL one by a Cat6 ethernet cable.

    The tv box contains a hard drive and an FTP server, I, like every one having this ISP, access to the FTP server by it's name hd1.freebox.fr or it's IP
    Despite not being in my Tomato LAN address plan (192.168.1.x) it is on my hardware LAN. I mean that when I connect to hd1.freebox.fr the traffic doesn't go to the Wan.

    The problem that I've is simple but hard :), at least, I've no solution yet.
    I've setup Tomato QOS max outbound bandwith to 900 as this is nearly the max speed I can reach (modem synchronizing at 1024) and so, due to Qos I'm limited in the uploading speed to the tv box.
    Upload rate is at max 100 kb/s while download is 2.5mb/s...

    If I switch off QOS, i've the same speed in both upload and download. But QOS is so nice for all other usage that I don't want to switch it off...

    Any idea ?.

    If the TV box is on the "far side" of the router, it is considered WAN - not much you can do about that. Can it not be plugged into one of the LAN ports on the router?

    Sorry to come back so late.
    If I connect the TV box to the router then the TV box cannot synchronize to the ADSL one and I'm loosing IP TV channels :(.
    I'll perform some other tests trying to allow all traffic from the TV box to go through the router.

    Regarding the QOS, a nice feature would be to allow a class to not go through the QOS process. As I can identify clearly FTP connection (FTP + TV box IP) and put them in a specific class, having this class completely out of the QOS process (no bandwidth limit) would be fine.

    I am not sure if this would help. Try setting NONE - NONE in your outgoing rate and limit for that class. It seems to exclude the class from being counted in the graph, maybe it may do what you wish.

    With some delay...
    NONE - NONE doesn't bypass QOS max bandwith setting. NONE - NONE seems equivalent to 100-100.
