Queues are for traffic shaping. Getting them right for your needs are a bit different matter.

You want to use the firewall to tag traffic types (mangle rules) and then create a queue tree in order to prioritize by class.

This is a heady subject, you will want to read the wiki and then google some examples;

That will get you started.

if you want a ready made solution, you could always look up the butch evans shaping script. He has a top notch set of mangle rules that will get you started as well as a queue tree. He charges a fee for his goodies tho.

found a decent article that will help you out too; ... -examples/
