I thought I’d just share a nice and yet powerful tool that I’ve used for quite some time to restrict certain IPs in my network to certain speeds at the WAN interface of my WRT54GL router. It has been written by robsonn from the HyperWRT forums.
Alrighty folks, first entry.
The first thing you’ll notice is the entirely different Web-Interface. Everything is based heavily on AJAX, so the load on the firmware’s HTTP server is reduced. Additionally, configuring becomes a lot more “fluent”, as only the values that the Web-Interface presents you with, are being reloaded, instead of the entire page.
