All that theory is very nice but I am a pragmatist that lives in the real
world.  I have personal, practical experience that asymmetric bandwidth
shaping does work and solves the hidden node problem.  Here's a link to the
device I am currently using:


I assure you that it will solve the problem I described.   Perhaps they are
hacking TCP headers and messing with window sizes.  Perhaps they are
invoking some layer 2 magic to control bandwidth. Whatever they are doing,
it works but it's just too expensive to deploy widely.  I'm not a professor
of anything but I have a sniffer and all the other tools I need and I will
figure it out.

Oh yes - I did get my caps lock stuck and type KB when I meant kb.  Sorry
about that - I guess I need to proofread better. 512kb down 64kb up

Thanks again for your input,
