It's something I should learn as well. :-/

I agree, Ben's basic ideas had some merit.  Just a bit of refining here and
there, and then the practical problem of implementation.  QoS will be needed
at some stage anyway, because things like games (I don't play them myself,
but a lot do) and VoIP will need some priority, while stuff like P2P file
transfers can be shoved into the background and use whatever spare bandwidth
that no-one else needed at the time.

Very cool... well, install the package and then have a routesetup.sh script
to configure it... :)

I'd pass on that one.  The financial situation has gone drastically downhill
this year and wireless is lower down the pecking order... However, the long
term outcome could be positive.. stay tuned. :)
