       Hello Sam, 

My home adsl connection as a Up Speed of 250Kbps and a Down Speed of 

When I use VOIP I need to stop all my Bittorrent traffic so the VOIP is OK. 

I do traffic shape my up link but I have not yet included shaping for VIOP. 
At the moment I am in the process of setting up Asterisk on my home brew 
FreedomBox. Which is my router that has ftp, email, weblog and bittorrent. 

When I get Asterisk setup and running. I will traffic shaped its data flows. 
I can then run some basic test to see what the difference is with and 
without shaping. It would be I think a good test setup because of the size 
of my internet connection. Will I able to use Bittorrent and voip at the 
same time ? I think with a bit of control the answer will yes. I use 
shorewall for the job. As you know this could be hand knitted with iptables 
and tc. I all so have a ftp server so I check out what thats like with voip.
