First we had to fix the theory. Ethernet was next. Cable after that.

Hmm. It is enabled? It doesn't work on a fresh boot?
These options in Berlin are 2 weeks old so
I note that cerowrt-devel is the main list

So try 7300 down 600 up. Latency to where is 40 ms?

No it accounts for ATM packetization at least in theory.
However in simplest.QoS there may be a bug in the r2q handling in htb at
below 1 Mbit. You can try commenting that out.
>> Further decrements do not really alter the latencies.
It is not clear to me how you are measuring. You should on a simple test
see 10ms or so added latency in your case (a ping and an upload)
The rrul tests should go to about 40.
I assume that there is another device I. The loop here?
