Uh oh. PEBCAK (Problem Exists Between Chair And Keyboard :-)

I see the problem… There’s this little checkbox in the “Basic Settings” of the GUI… It’s labeled “Enable” and hidden in plain sight above all the interesting stuff in that tab. If it isn’t checked, the router is just as bloated as every other home router.

However, if you *do* check it, everything works as desired. Whew!

A few thoughts which might keep this from ever happening again: 

- Was it disabled by default? (I don’t remember unchecking it…)
- Is there even a reason to have the “Enable” checkbox? Would there ever be a circumstance where a person wouldn’t want SQM?
- Could the “Enable” checkbox be replaced by another “Not Enabled” entry in the “Interface name” dropdown?
