    Is there a way to use both priority and rate control at the same time? I'd like to have dedicated bandwidth to our VoIP phone system, but using rate control the voice quality sucks because the correct ports aren't getting priority...

    Can you not assign all service ports to your phone systems IP in the rate control interface? That way anything that comes out or into your phone system IP will have priority.

    Did that - voice quality was awful. When I switched over to priority, the quality is great. Would be nice to have some sort of combination of the two...

    Just to be clear, you made 2 entries in the rate control list and enabled them, 1 for upstream and 1 for downstream, correct? Maybe you didn't give it enough bandwidth? How much did you give it and how many phones are being used at once? With an IP phone I tested for awhile ago, I gave it 90-95Kbit/s. Anything less and the voice quality wasn't good.

    I have Vonage, the RV016 and three WANs, to get the voice quality right; I had to bond to one WAN and set the bandwidth min @ 60K and set the max @ 150K. With three lines all running in three way calling they all had perfect quality. Anything less and the vocoders started to unlock. I am now working with the WAN sharing. Not working totally yet but getting closer on two WANs. http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/sh...ad.php?t=49330

    I had them all (the phone adapters) set to 120kbps. Packet8 tech support only recommended 60kbps...
