    I have read a lot of posts but I do not see the definite answer on how to setup Tomato to have the VOIP, web and torrents running concurrently without any problems.
    I have looked at robsons script and QoS settings but is there are conclusive best solutions to do it?

    well there is no perfect solution, and it gets progressively harder the lesser bandwidth you have available

    Anyway, skip layer7 filters for torrenting since they don't work well.
    A sample configuration is as follows:
    Default Classification: Lowest
    Destination Port 53: Highest (dns stuffies)
    Layer 7 for VOIP: High
    Destination port 80: Low (this is for web browsing)

    Everything else, such as bittorrent will drop into lowest classification by default. Also, keep your outgoing bandwidth to 90% of the max to minimize latency issues

    I do things slightly differently. My first Qos classification rule contains the mac id of the VOIP adapter with highest priority.

    I think that could work well with limited number of voip devices.
    What if you have 50 or being added all the time?
    azeari's solution by going with Layer 7 seems cleaner, assuming it works.

    Would robson's script complement that?

    i haven't taken a look at robson's script yet, but i believe its simply an alternative way of doing QOS.

    The path i outlined here works with tomato's built-in GUI, so you shouldn't need the script (=
