	I am not too amazed, neither the toast man nor shibby forks of tomato seem to handle the ATM link layer properly, at 4Mbit/s down and less up this omission is going to be noticeable no matter how god their AQM/QOS system might be otherwise. Looking today it looks like only Gargoyle actually handles that properly (well almost, they turn on stab unconditionally when PPPoE is used, but that test has some false positives…)

	Yeah, Dave (and the rest of course) really developed  a fine solution to the home router problem!

Best Regards
