Although, I don't believe the traffic shaping router is throwing away packets...yet. The router sees 2 packets coming in: 1 to client 'A' and 1 to client 'B' ... The traffic shaping router sees that client 'A' has more priority than client 'B' and thus delivers the packet first to client 'A' | If the bandwidth is fully utilized then to achieve required throughput to client 'A', packets to client 'B' must be dropped. I believe this is what he wants.
My ISP throttles me back to 64kbps if we go over the monthly cap. But i'm still able to 'shape' those packets even so, to allow more priority of that 64kb of bandwidth to a particular client.
