I pretty much tried the same, putting torrents and NNTP on lowest priority, and HTTP and email on highest priority. So any HTTP or emails should've made NNTP and torrents crawl. Never happened. Everything kept downloading as if no QoS was present.Funny you should ask, I have just tried it but I'm not convinced it works properly. I tried throttling torrents, edonkey et al while allowing http priority. Not convinced it worked...
I hope that you've placed your ADSL router/modem in bridge mode and connected the broadband router's (which is running DD-WRT firmware) WAN port to the ADSL router.
Run ifconfig from the terminal and see if its WAN port is called nic-vlan1. If it's not that, then you need to change the startup script.
You can also try to dial the PPPoE connection manually from the terminal with the following command:
pppd plugin /usr/lib/rp-pppoe.so $nic noipdefault noauth nodefaultroute noaccomp noccp nobsdcomp nodeflate nopcomp novj novjccomp nomppe nomppc usepeerdns user $1 password $2 default-asyncmap mtu 1492 mru 1492 persist lcp-echo-interval $tmo lcp-echo-failure 10 maxfail 0 holdoff 30 unit $ppn
Replace $nic with the name of the WAN interface (ie. nic-vlan1), $1 with the username (ie. firstname.lastname@example.org), $2 with password and $ppn with the number of the PPPoE connection that you're dialing, starting at 0
#Linksys WRT54G/GS/GL nic=nic-vlan1 auxl=2 intl=3 locl=7 #Exceptions case $(nvram get DD_BOARD) in "Asus WL-520GU/GC" ) auxl=4; intl=0; locl=1 ;; "Linksys WRT310N" ) auxl=1; intl=1; locl=3 nic=nic-vlan1 ;; esac
#TP-Link nic=nic-vlan2 auxl=1 intl=1 locl=3
Joy! That appears to work.... going to try the script agani!ok, so what happens if you run:
pppd plugin /usr/lib/rp-pppoe.so vlan2 noipdefault noauth nodefaultroute noaccomp noccp nobsdcomp nodeflate nopcomp novj novjccomp nomppe nomppc usepeerdns user [username] password [pwd] default-asyncmap mtu 1492 mru 1492 persist lcp-echo-interval 60 lcp-echo-failure 10 maxfail 0 holdoff 30 unit 0
After you ran that, run ifconfig and look for ppp0.
If ppp0 has an IP address, then you can try that script again. Or run route add -net 0.0.0.0 netmask 0.0.0.0 ppp0 and see if you can then ping like www.take2.co.za on its IP address: 220.127.116.11
