        This is testable, if nobody beats me to it I will try this week. The main idea is to replace the ingress shaping on ge00 with egress shaping on the interface between the client and the router, so most likely se00 in cerowrt. This should effectively behave as the current sqm setup with ingress shaping, though only for hosts on se00. Of ifb truly is costly this setup should show better bandwidth use in rrul tests than the default. It obviously degrade local performance of se00 and hence be not a true solution unless one is happy to fully dedicate a box as shaper ;)

        Best Regards
