if this question should be moved to some other site please let me know.
I'm trying to configure traffic control on my TP-LINK TD-W8960N modem router. From what I can see in the configuration screen I have to set a maximum upload and download speed for the WAN, which is set to the line's maximum. Then I have to specify rules for different IP ranges, being able to select protocol, ports, a precedence, and min/max upload/download speed.
My questions are: What is the meaning of the min and max speeds? How is the total speed distributed? What if one PC is idle, can the rest use up it's bandwitdh?
The manual was of no help.
Here's a screenshot of the rule creation page:
