Yo, I have a FreeBSD box acting as a router between me and the Internet. Whenever someone on the local network downloads something, the other connections have a really high latency. A second or more. For people who like to download large files and play online games, it's not good.
I tried traffic shaping with PF, which works - almost: I tried the home example in the PF book, but it doesn't work out so well. I can throttle users with no trouble, but even so that doesn't seem to help the latency issue unless I choke the 'big file download' users almost completely off. It's like nothing helps. I tried a priority based queue where all traffic on the gaming ports was placed in front of all other traffic, and while I saw a very mild improvement, latency was still really pitiful. Is there anything else I can do? Anyone have a similar setup and wish to share config files? Are there some sysctl's that would help this out or something. I'm almost ready to just buy a 'gaming' *gag* router which implements their own brand of QoS, but don't want to sink to that level if I don't have to.
