A rough difference between QoS and 'traffic shaping'

No, the important bit is the bottle neck that is ISP->modem/router from router to clients there's no issue. with local QoS and traffic shaping on downstream you're just throwing away stuff thta's already passed the bottleneck.

More importantly QoS on the upstream will in most cases fix any problems anyway since that's usually what slows you down, a clogged upstream will make your downstream slower since you can't request new packages fast enough. so you won't get full or even close to full use of the downstream you have available.

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.

But, shaping is pointless at that point, it's already past the bottle neck, of only risk throwing the away, there's no other benefit at that in in the chin.
