I can do ingress shaping tests at above 80mbits at work since we now 
have a 100mbit downlink, but I don't have cerowrt hardware that runs 
fast enough to keep up.  Also I would only be able to do them on the 
weekend or late at night when no one else is in the office when I can 
swap out the router.  I can't leave experimental setups alone running 
our office link.

FYI: I've purchased a Nighthawk x6 for some testing.  I did x6 even 
though its CPU speed is slower than the x4 because I want to see if the 
twin 5Ghz radios and the promise of automatic load balancing helps on 
the wireless side (we have a lot of 5Ghz wireless clients)  If it 
doesn't hold up as a router we may still use it as just an AP.

Like you mentioned the stock firmware is not the greatest and there's no 
actual bandwidth control settings.  Hopefully openwrt support will show 
up soon.

My initial tests with Gbit pipes on either side are certainly impressive 
as it can route at over 900 Mbs while keeping latency at 12ms or lower. 
  Tonight I'm planning on testing it with my home Comcast cable link and 
see if the low-latency holds.
