I would use a quantum 300 for the up. There is no need to fiddle with
the target values below 2.5mbits.

The edgerouter has issues with tcp offloads enabled. If you are not
using the other ports as routed ports, you can disable gro offloads on
all ports for lower latency at a huge cost in local bandwidth (this is
something that cake will fix if we can get ubnt to ship it one day.

Make a change, measure with a good benchmark like flent's rrul test.

Both are severely overbuffered on cablemodems and CMTSes running at this speed.
