Rate limiting a single host or netmask

This three line script does the trick: tc qdisc add dev $DEV root handle 1: cbq avpkt 1000 bandwidth 10mbit tc class add dev $DEV parent 1: classid 1:1 cbq rate 512kbit \ allot 1500 prio 5 bounded isolated tc filter add dev $DEV parent 1: protocol ip prio 16 u32 \ match ip dst 195.96.96.97 flowid 1:1 The first line installs a class based queue on your interface, and tells the kernel that for calculations, it can be assumed to be a 10mbit interface. If you get this wrong, no real harm is done. But getting it right will make everything more precise. The second line creates a 512kbit class with some reasonable defaults. The last line tells which traffic should go to the shaped class. Linkerd. Commotion Wireless.

With the ESP-8266 WiFi module, we have a tiny, tiny device with a WiFi radio, and just enough processing power to do something interesting. What does that mean? WiFi throwies. [Andreas Reischle] stuffed an ESP-8266 WiFi module and a lithium cell inside a weatherproof controller loaded up with magnets. The software is based on the NodeMCU firmware and features a web server and a DNS server. It’s much better than polluting the world with LEDs and lithium; this one has Hunt the Wumpus on it.
