Recent versions of Cake have an “autorate_ingress” flag, which can track capacity when deployed on the downstream end of the link.  I use it myself to assist with 3G, where downlink quality and contention vary frequently.

I haven’t yet found a robust way to automatically sense link capacity from the upstream side.  You’ll therefore need to set a conservative static value for the uplink capacity.
