1.5 Mbps auto-adjust? I'm not familiar with that. What service provider
offers this? (A link to service info page would be helpful.)
Does this mean that if you are downloading something at 1.0 Mbps, your
uplink speed is limited to 500 Mbps?
I would think that by limiting both the uplink and downlink speeds to about
1/2 of the overall bandwidth, it would probably work, since the ISP wouldn't
be adjusting anything. (Though it sounds like you've already tried this)
Could this be related to MTU size through the VPN tunnel?

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