I found the magic shapers guessing on my upstream to be woefully
inadequate. I'm meant to have a 200Kb/s upstream and I get about 160Kb/s
 without the traffic shaper, and if I'm lucky. I've had to set the
traffic shaper to shape to just 105Kb/s upstream to get it to be
noticeably effective. My tests wern't that scientific however.

In answer to sharing the bandwidth evenly, there is a tick box on the
magic shaper page to do it - "Share Bandwidth on LAN evenly" or
something like that.
