SQM help on BT Home Hub 5A

Hi Folks,

Running a BT Home Hub 5A and have its main feed coming through powerline adapters in Lan port 1.

I have SQM enabled on this port (and I know this homehub really can't cope with sqm but I'm limiting it to very slow speed, like under 40mbps as this is temporary and I'll be putting a proper ethernet connection in in future).

All WLAN traffic is shaped correctly but all the other 3 LAN ports just bypass the SQM and max out the powerline, which I dont want to do.

Any advice on how I can make the other LAN ports go through SQM? I presume they are just going straight to the CPU and bypassing SQM.

P.S, separate question but I've a feeling the ports are labelled in order, ie, LAN 1 has less usage than LAN 4 so I'm thinking LAN 4 is the powerline even though its in port 1.
EDIT:
Checked online documentation again and can see that the ports aren't in order, problem solved.

Thanks in advance

Can you confirm feeling with a cable?
Physical port exiting to switch is eth0, you cannot chape lanx->lany traffic except piecess that pass CPU.

Thank @brada4

Checked online and they do indeed appear incorrectly so problem solved.

So is there no way to shape LAN taffic?

Inly what brctl/iproute-bridge does, like limit multicasts etc primitive thing.

The pure text mode way:

Just make sure you "sandwich" your text between two rows of backtick characters ` (which themselves will be invisible in the preview) looking in something like this in the editor:
```
Your Pasted Text as preformatted text with fixed width font
1
1111 (note with fixed-width fonts the numbers are right-aligned)
```
but looking like this in the rendered forum:

1111 (note with fixed-width fonts the numbers are right-aligned)

Or the graphical way:
