    Hi all

    I have a rvs4000. Sadly its under a week old and i got it due to its qos settings. Well, since buying it im thinking that it was a bad choice and that I need to send it back for a serious upgrade.

    Basically im in a flatshare with a few other users. We all use the net a lot. Probably all of us are using p2p a bit and i have a nas that im wanting to use with Rsync to do replication jobs with over the internet.

    Especially when I start using the rsync backup from my nas, the internet on my laptop just grinds to a total halt. After half an hour the dns doesn't even work and domains arent found.

    Killing the replication process on my little qnap nas resolves this in a second and then the laptop and other clients come to life again.

    Ive got a load (well, you can only setup 15 :angry: ) of services and bandwidth limits already defined in the QoS area of the rvs4000. however, this seems to simply not be enough to resolve my problems. Ive also tried playing around with the port priority but it doesn't have much effect from my testing.

    What i think I need is a router that offers QoS settings that allow me to control the number of simultaneous TCP connections that any one client can make. So far , from my research only the Draytek Vigor 2950 can do this.

    So can anyone 1) suggest things that stop me having to send the rvs4000 back that may resolve my problem

    or 2) suggest another more PRO router that has more QoS options.

    As I mention, the very pricey Draytek is currently top of the list: http://www.draytek.co.uk/products/vigor2950.html
    Its a gigabit switched lan with very good QoS. Its the only small 4 port router ive found that has connection limiting QoS features for under $800/$1000. Anyone got any better suggestions!?!
