We are using the shaper module (shaper.o) from the 2.2 kernel with the
debian shaper package for quite a while now and we are satisfied.
We only perform simple shaping, the outgoing(!) traffic from one or more
network adapters is limited.
It's staightforward in its use:
For an adapter (eth1, 64Kbit):
shapecfg attach shaper0 eth1
shapecfg speed shaper0 64000
ifconfig shaper0 myhost netmask 255.255.255.240 broadcast 220.127.116.11.255 up
route add -net some.network netmask a.b.c.d dev shaper0
Hope this helps,
