    WAN = Wide Area Network (The internet)
    LAN = Local Area Network (Your local eth Network)
    wLAN = Wireless Local Area Network (Your Wireless Network)


    They are acronims.
    I am not sure what you mean when you want to know wich is best...
    Can you be more specific.

    I know what they stand for, but DD-WRT has you choose one of them when you enable QoS. I was asking which one I'd choose.

    Next time be more specific ;)
    You ask what are the differences so thats why I poste that :)

    Is where you going to apply the QoS I have it set for WAN only I do not need QoS in my LAN or WLAN.

    Do you know what the difference is, though?

    Are you to dumb too read the posts? If you don't know what you're doing just let it be. Seems like you have no clue what you're asking or talking about!

    The answer is already posted!

    Okay:

    QoS inside your wLAN or LAN means, that, if some programms or traffic interfere each other (you upload s.th. to so's computer and do another transfer inside your LAN or wLAN) INSIDE your LAN or wLAN Qos will prioritise your favourite.

    QoS WAN means your internet traffic. For example prioritisation of eDonkey and a FTP-Client.

    I hope, that's what you mean and you understand my answer.

    Have a nice day

    Thank you very much for your clarification, Jan. :)

    So if I do P2P and VoIP, it'd better to choose "LAN & wLAN" for QoS. Right?

    Thanks, and have a nice day, Jan!

    You didn't read the clarification did you? It would be WAN for your purpose.

    Yes, joebloggs is right.

    Put the P2P-Client into "Bulk"-Modus and the VoIP-Ports into "Premium" or "Express"-Modus. Then it should run better.

    But, in my opinion, QoS is only needed for poor i-net connections. If you have a 6Mbit/s-Line and 600kb/s upload, i think, you don't need QoS, 'cause the P2P-Client will never reach the maximum of your connection.

    Okay, nice life to all of you :)

    VoIP is handled by a separate ATA plugged into the router and P2P by the main desktop, so I'd think that internal QoS, LAN & wLAN, would be better.

    By the way, you guys should learn to be to more tolerant of people. Not everyone's like you.

    Those settings will only work locally and will not impact your speed in the WAN.
