Thanks for the Introduction Rich, and thanks again to you and many others on this list for all your contributions over the years helping to combat bloat.
This product was born of my own frustration with finding a way to help neighbors and family get a simple off-the-shelf solution that even non-technical users can deploy.
I look forward to participating more actively on this list.

He tells me that his company is installing OpenWrt on a commercial, off the shelf (COTS) TP-Link router and selling them on commercially. His "secret sauce" is an auto-update facility and improved setup software, which includes a rate-detection step that operates continually to adjust the fq_codel parameters to the actual line rate. You can take a look at IQrouter.com, or look them up on Amazon.
