    I was just looking for this also since I have my firewalla as the DHCP.

    i'd like QoS too. i reckon a uniform and easy/understandable platform like Firewalla would make it easy for users to configure it. QoS would most likely need to be disabled on the router though.
    thinking out loud though; i wonder if there would be any real world benefit to this - you usually only have control over transmitted packets.

    QoS ... is a very hard topic to discuss.  There are a class of people, who feel if enough bandwidth is there, why care.  And there are another group of people, who says, there isn't always enough bandwidth, need to have carpool lanes in.

    Yes, we heard you all loud and clear.  We are trying to find a way to make QoS seamless, as of what we do with cybersecurity.  The Blue and Red are not true routers, so we are not sure if creating different queues or shaping of traffic makes sense.

    Understandable and I thought about it and I have the bandwidth that qos should not matter. Just have quite a few smart devices and streaming 4k on multiple displays.

    my "requirement" is to prioritize gaming traffic. i have a MikroTik router and it's too complicated to do it on there. i'm sure the Linux tweekers would love it!
