create a pipe with a bandwidth of 128kbps and select source as the mask
for it. then, let your entire subnet use that pipe by creating an outbound
rule.  each host will get a dynamic pipe created for it with 128kbps
bandwidth for outgoing bandwidth.

as has been discussed here many times, you wont get much performance boost
by trying to shape incoming traffic. instead, it could make things worse.
