pf and altq are enabled. My ISP allows 16kB/s upload and 128kB/s
download. I want to use half of that. What should pf.conf contain, to
limit my computer's upload and download speeds? I've tried:

altq sk0 cbq bandwidth 1576Kb queue { lan, upload, download }
queue lan bandwidth 1000Kb cbq(default)
queue upload bandwidth 64Kb cbq
queue download bandwidth 512Kb cbq
block in all
pass in quick on sk0 from 192.168.0.0/16 queue lan
pass in all on sk0 queue download
block out all
pass out quick on sk0 to 192.168.0.0/16 queue lan
pass out all on sk0 queue upload

AFAIK ALTQ only queues outgoing traffic, and pass in quick on sk0 from
192.168.0.0/16 queue lan means: send the packet to the lan queue if it's
routed out via the
interface to which "queue lan" is attached, i.e. back out via sk0 -
which isn't going to happen.

That would explain. So is there any way to limit the speed at which i'm
downloading? Come on I've seen a bunch of software like this for Windows on
the net!

According to http://www.openbsd.org/faq/pf/queueing.html it _can_ work
if you have a separate router See the examples.
