Bridge and traffic shaping



  • Hi,

    I'm new to pfsense and I want to configure a L2 Bridge as a traffic shaper. Currently I'm testing the setup with this simple network using the latest stable pfsense 64Bit.

    –--Internet-----
              |
              |      16Mbit Down / 1Mbit Up
        +--------+
        | ADSL  |
        | Router |
        +--------+
              | <- WAN Interface (em0)
        +--------+
        | Pfsense|    Bridge Interface LAN/WAN OPT2 (em0/bge0)
        +--------+
              | <- LAN Interface (bge0)
        +----------+
        | DD-WRT |
        +----------+
              | Wifi
        +----------+
        | Laptop    |
        +----------+

    To test the traffic shaping I have used the Wizard for multiple WAN and single LAN. I have chosen one WAN and configured bit torrent with a bandwidth limit of 200kbit/s. However, this is not working. By default the Wizard chooses the WAN interface which I guess is correct and I enter my download speed with 100% and my upload with 97%. I have followed this guide:
