The problem is when datas are knocking at the door of a NIC, they're
already here, and it's too late to preserve bandwidth.

So, it's better to use queueing on internal interface of your bridge for
ingoing datas (which are going to the LAN), even if your lan is certainly
faster than a Web connection.

Hi all,

if I have to shape ingoing AND outgoing datas on a trasparent bridge,
is it ok to apply queueing to both interfaces, ignoring
the FAQ raccomandation?
