I've got it working, thanks !!
Now, I also have a SIP solution which has a fixed IP in my LAN1.
I see that traffic shaper is a solution to limit my bandwidth... but can
it also be used to guarantee a certain bandwidth ?
I tried several things, but it doesn't seem to fit into my ruleset, or I
did a mistake.
I now can use the captive portal for people I don't trust (or don't want
to trust), and that's a good thing :)
Too bad that my WLAN USB dongle is fitted onto a 1.1 USB port, it wont
go faster than 750kbit... which is enough for occasional use ofcourse :)
