	He's right, if he started with the Magic Shaper Wizard the
"small packet upload" rule only applies to packets less than 100 bytes
in size.

	I think someone else posted something similar a month or two back,
and the answer was they replaced their cable modem?

	We actually had something the other day where one user was
downloading something big (I suspect via FTP since the traffic monitor
didn't categorize it as HTTP) on our T1 and all other Internet access
was extremely problematic for all other users.  Most packets weren't
going through, etc.  As soon as the download stopped it was fine.  The
only thing I could think of was that traffic was streaming into the T1
so fast as to create a denial-of-service type of situation(?).  Pinging
through m0n0wall to our T1 router seemed to work just fine so I think it
was a T1 issue.
