QoS in Talisman 1.04

    I am trying to setup QoS and I have a couple of questions about it. I want to set BitTorrent using the Bulk priority so everything else will take presidence over it and only use remaining bandwidth for BT. I have a cable modem with 2048 kbps downstream / 384 kbps upstream and I need to know what values to input. Do I take 90% of each of those values for my maximum cable bandwidth and input them into the Uplink and Dnlink boxes? Also, should I use WAN or LAN & wLAN? Thanks for any help ya'll can provide me!

    pretty much. I use 85%, myself. WAN.

    it would be nice to express your UL and DL in percent % 'cause i have different speed on internet and other on metropolitan network.

    So about 15% free is good to set?

    I got 24mbit down and 8mbut up.

    ok, one more time...
    how can i fill out the Dnlink text box if i download from INTERNET (limited) with 32KB max, an from WAN (up to 3MB)???
    what will be the value in kbps?

    multiply it by 0.85, not that difficult

    multiply what? 256KB or 3MB...

    you tell me, you're the one that wants to do it. I don't know what you're trying to limit. Obviously you have to put in whatever value you're trying to limit it to.

    is this a smart answer, 'cause i don't get it...
    let's say that DOWNLOAD bandwith can be between 32KB -> infinit ... so what will be the value in kbps?

    I still don't understand what kind of connection you have, because you haven't said, and what you have said is nothing short of confusing. I assume you are only trying to limit internet traffic, correct? And LAN traffic is irrelevant? Because you can set this up both ways, to only affect internet traffic and to affect both internet and LAN traffic. Usually all you want to do is affect internet traffic, but I don't know what your goal is. You should be able to find out what your upstream and downstream bandwidth is for your internet connection. Multiply those numbers by 0.85 and stick those values in there.

    the WAN speed can be different depending on the destination. there is a range of addresses that the limit does not apply (my ip is from this range) and i will call it Metropolitan speed. outside this range of IPs is the Internet speed.

    so from what i know:
    Internet speed = 32KB
    Metropolitan speed is for now unlimited (or between 0 -> my NIC speed)

    let's say i download with 8mbps from somebody inside this metropolitan network and i want to be able to do some web browsing, but if i use Dnlink 85% of 256kbps my download will dramaticaly drop every time i use http from 8mbps to 217kbps...witch is not god! :p

    so my goal was to put inside that text box a percent not a kbps value...
    is there a way to do deal with this problem?

    no simple method, no. Your connection is kind of unique, if not strange. Good luck.

    what is so unique about downloading from ISP's inside network with one speed and another outside this network???
     
  14. _Shorty

    _Shorty Network Guru Member

    what makes you think that's the norm? heh
     
  15. redlynx

    redlynx Network Guru Member

    normal? maybe not...but definitely not unique!
     
  16. _Shorty

    definitely an extreme minority. I'd be surprised if any ISP besides yours did that, frankly. 32KB/s from the internet, but almost LAN speeds for non-LAN but still within the ISP. Bloody insane. Whoever negotiated your ISP's bandwidth deal needs to be smacked around.

    :)) so...QoS in this conditions is not possible...
     
  18. _Shorty

    it's possible, just not easily done. You've only got one connection, so you need to shape your traffic according to IP addresses. I think you'd have to figure out your own custom configuration for all the different things involved in doing QoS. Possible, but not necessarily an easy undertaking. Definitely not something I could help with. And most certainly something beyond the scope of the QoS provided in this firmware and its existing configuration interface. Might be able to hack something together using rc_startup and rc_firewall, at best.
