I have a 1.5Mbit connection - total speed. This speed includes upload 
and download (the ISP has them auto-adjust).

I have a WRAP board with 1.22 on it, and I have 5 remote locations.

I have VPN tunnels set up b/w these remote locations that all total only 
transfer 200mb per day.

I am trying to shape the traffic at each location so that random web 
surfing does not kill my vpn connections.

I have a Debian server with Smokeping setup to monitor ping times across 
the VPN tunnels to the other m0n0walls.

I can't make it work using the default rules. Anything I try just makes 
the latency go through the roof, and I get a lot of dropped packets 
(even in peroids of low usage like the middle of the night)!

I have tried to find actual speeds by running some speed tests, and I 
have limited my speeds to something well below (even up to half) of 
those results!

My latest attempt was Traffic shaper enabled with default rules, 
500Kbit/s incoming, 350Kbit/s outgoing.

Help me!
