Qos Question

Discussion in 'HyperWRT Firmware' started by Reiper, Aug 26, 2006.

    I'm trying to understand this Qos thing in Hyperwrt Thibor 15c... I have my voip device mac address set to highest and all other computers set to medium based on their mac address. I've noticed that when I start to download a large file with firefox then try to make a phone call while this file is downloading, it is choppy. Then as soon as the file is finished downloading the sound is fine again. Isn't the Qos supposed to give all the bandwidth to the voip device first? Is there a service that I can set to low or medium to get rid of this issue? I've already tried setting both http and https to medium and that didn't work either.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated! By the I have around 1500 kbps down and 600 kbps up.

    TIA

    QoS does not handle Bandwidth, it handles priorities, check your mac addresses are correct or try using Ethernet Port based QoS, that may help. make sure your upstream bandwidth is set to 80%-90% of your total UPLOAD speed

    Thanks for the suggestions, however I have the upload set at 510kbps and have tried using ethernet port priorities and have not had any luck. In the past I loaded dd-wrt which took care of this issue but I just don't like that firmware compared to Thibor's.

    So I guess my question is how does dd-wrt address Qos differently as compared to hyperwrt? It seems to have to do with download priority as it occurs when I'm downloading a large file and the breakup is occurring on my end. People have said that you can't control the download priority but with dd-wrt you enter both upload and download in Qos?

    For everything else, hyperwrt seems to work better for my situation which is why I don't want to go back to dd-wrt. So if there is anything else I can do, i.e., is there a port that firefox uses to download things that I can set to low? Or is just using port 80 or 443?

    TIA
