Ok, this was supposed to be a new thread but I hit reply instead.
It is pretty pointless to set my bandwidth to be higher than my upload speed, correct? I have cable and my connection is asymmetric.
According to the FAQ I should set my bandwidth rate to be less than my maximum bandwidth. Does this refer to upload or download? Anyone else have any settings for cable (roadrunner) that they have found to be good for them?

I think it would be like 80% of upstream maximum for cable. Upstream is usually (nearly always) smaller than downstream.
