The Gateway's WAN interface can now be conﬁgured for:
❑ strict priority queuing (as currently)
❑ weighted fair queuing
❑ rate-limiting funnel
The conﬁguration mechanism is designed to be ﬂexible enough to accommodate complex
queuing requirements. Conﬁgurations not supported by the Gateway will be ﬂagged during
You conﬁgure the WAN outbound queue as follows:
❑ create and conﬁgure one or more queues, which can be a basic queue or a priority queue comprising
a group of basic queues, a weighted fair queue comprising a group of basic queues, or a funnel com-
prising a group of basic queues;
❑ assign a queue instance to the Ethernet WAN interface;
❑ map packet attributes to a queue.
The same queue name can be assigned to multiple interfaces which require identical queue conﬁgura-
tion, however currently the only interface available for queueing conﬁguration is ethernet 1.
To help you conﬁgure queues, and to maintain compatibility with previous ﬁrmware releases, several
queues are set up automatically on upgrade to Version 7.7, or upon a factory reset.
