    I have got a WRT54G V2.2 with Sveasoft Alchemy-V1.0 v3.37.6.8sv .

    Yesterday i got internet over cable at 10200 kbit/s /420 kbit/s :biggrin:

    I'd like to completely cancel my phone line, so I bought a fritzbox -->voip

    Now here is my problem:
    I activated QoS in my firmware to make sure voip/Sip has the highest priority and something like torrent/emule has low priority.
    After that my bandwidth dropped to about 6 mbit :eek:
    For testing, I deleted EVERY priority rule and only activated QoS with absolutly no settings --> still about 6 mbit, although no voip/torrent/emule is running at this time.

    Only if I completely deactivate QoS I have my 10 mbit.

    Is it to much for my router to overwatch 10 mbit?
    Is my firmware to old? If yes, with firmware is best at QoS? Which one should I try?

    Anyone an idea?

    afaik thats about right for Alchemy. I dont know if other firmwares are any better but there now harm in trying i guess.
