If i download something like linux livecds with wget or bittorrent my web browser gets really slow. How can i setup traffic shaping so web browser would have higher priority than bittorrent and wget downloads? I have 1Mbit/s 3G connection.

Hi,

I think there is ( used to be?) a tool called 'trickle' that can set the maximum download speed .
( but this is something you can probably also do in your torrent client).

This is not really 'prioritising' , since the max will be valid all the time.

Alex.
