Still seem to get the same result, to control traffic in both directions I need to have two rules. The mangle rule appears to be working all right as all traffic runs through it ( interface=all) when I use this in the Tree queues I set the parent to Bridge1 which is my bridge between the lan and wan...

I initally tried controlling the flow with one mangle and one tree rule, but it was only effective on traffic in one direction.

My setup before was: OutBound Internet Traffic - CIR 1024, MIR 2048 -- Customer Queue limited to say CIR 131 MIR 256 Inbound Inte...

hmm well maybe you could set the secondary high queues to 7, that may help.... the other option is that it could be something to do with the firewall mangle rules..
