    I'm sorry if this is covered somewhere (I did spend some time searching), but is it possible to affect QoS priorities completely within the wired LAN traffic, (i.e. not traffic to or from Internet, but prioritizing certain LAN connections over other LAN connections)?

    Also, what are the best tools for measuring speeds within my wired LAN?

    No QOS is al about managing throughput to/from the limited service on the WAN port. Traffic only on the LAN will be handled by the switch chip, won't even enter the router Linux OS.

    With my Asus 520gU, can I be confident that the switch chip is in fact acting like a proper switch, e.g. it queues packets that it cannot immediately send, as opposed to just throwing them away?
