Quality of Service(QoS) is optional in the Linux kernel since 2.2.x.
Don't mean it's easy though, check this URL for some details.

.... i'm still interested to know WHY someone would want to throttle
back ?!?!?  heck, if you want slow, dial up at 2400 or 300 :)

I'm thinking of throttling clients based on browser type, hmm...  ;)

There could be lots of reasons for wanting to keep certain traffic
limited during certain times of the day. You might not want people
fetching your.. er.. home-made audio files via ftp killing your
chances of fragging your friends, just to name a non-commercial
scenario.

because my line disconnects at speeds above 100kb/s, it has something
to do with my hardware: speedtouch usb modem

Wow, is that a documented deficiency with that brand of modem?

just for clarity: when i download something from a normal server, at a
speed of more than 100kb/sec, my line DISCONNECTS after 5 seconds.
imagine downloading source files like that? 5 sec of downloading, then
type 'pppd ..' again, 5 sec downloading, ....

how is it you've determined that throttling back will solve the
problem - how do you know the problem isnt somewhere else ?

using trhe throttle with ftpclients, or using a download manager to
throttle speed, i have no problems. the line stays there as long as i
want. so it cannot be anything else, can it?

no, pppoa2. i'm not the only one with this problem, and there are
fixes for it when using pppoa3, but pppoa3 won't work on my box. maybe
one day i know enough about programming to fix pppoa2's source myself

this is probably an obvious question, but you know about this?:
http://speedtouch.sourceforge.net/

maybe you can muck with the MRU value, or maybe set the <speed> rate

that is indeed the driver i'm using :)

good idea; i didn't check whether i could change something in ppp/options.
thanks for the suggestions!
 
 
 

1. limiting download speed

I'm wondering if it's possible to limit the web speed of a download for
users accessing my server. So like each download would only go at
10kbps, so one T3 doesn't take my bandwith, how is this possible, and if
so, waht programs, I know I can do it in 2.1.xx but I need the
liability, and 2.1.xx won't work for some things

2. Strange mail message

3. download speed is faster than upload speed with ftpd+term?

4. hello everyone,about memeory manager...

5. not printing last page of long print outs.

6. Speed..Speed..Speed

7. NFS and NIS not initiating

8. help! upload/download speed differ.....???

9. PPP upload/download speeds

10. Restricting download speed of one computer on a network

11. Slow Download Speeds

12. Slow download speed with RedHat 5.0?
