Opps...I did mix up the up/downstream values, though only on my mailing list post (not on my actual
traffic shaper pipes).  Also, I've tried using my real world up/downstream values (~320/1200) and it
makes no difference.

I've reviewed my setup (pipes, queues and rules) several times, even wiping it and starting from
scratch a couple times, but no dice - web surfing with and without it seems to be the same.

decent web surfing performance while the downstream is saturated by a large download.  I've tried to
accomplish this by giving DNS queries and replies, outbound SYNs, and inbound and outbound ACKs
priority over all other traffic.  However, there doesn't seem to be any improvement over when
traffic shaping is disabled altogether.  Here's my traffic shaper config:

  1544 Kb upstream and 384 Kb downstream?  Sounds like you're
  transposing up and down.

  You'll need to drop those values.  If your connection is 1500/384,
  you'll need to use something like 1400/350 because your effective
  throughput isn't really 1500/384.
