Hmmm... At work I use OpenWRT barrier breaker and not ceroWRT.
I'm just using the stock qos script and luci.  How would I go about 
setting it to only do uplink?

Thanks.  That would be very helpful. If it works I'll get one.

We need QoS for our VoIP system.  If I don't run QoS the VoIP system is 
very unhappy.

There several pages that say its based on OpenWRT?  But I don't see any 
mention of that on OpenWRT page website and searches for r7500 or AC2350 
  or nighthawk don't seem to turn up anything.  Just a few hits for the 
r7000 and that the radio is not supported.
