Special QoS problem

    Hi everyone!

    I just tried out Tomato 1.11 and I'm impressed. I was using DD-WRT before.

    The most important thing to me is QoS to be set up perfectly. My problem is that my ISP provides two kind of bandwidths to me, one for its internal network (a metropolitan network) with very high bandwidth (50 Mb/s in and out), and one for connections outside its network (2Mb/s in, 768 kb/s out) - the internet.

    The problem is that if I set the inbound and outbound bandwidth values to be the lower ones from above then my high-speed metropolitan connections are limited as well. But if I set these values for the metropolitan bandwidht values, basically my QoS is worthless.

    So, does anyone have any suggestions?
    Is there a way that a QoS class be set to be left out of the QoS at all?

    is there a specific ip range that falls within the internal network?

    you could create a classification system such that the internal network is in a higher class and the external network is in a lower class. you put max in and out at the internal network limits and then make the external network limits an appropriate percentage of that.

    any other classifications you want to add would then be applied to each network separately and percentages adjusted accordingly.

    the only issue is that every rule would need a version for the internal and another for the external network -- thus you may run out of classes if you have a lot of rules you want to implement

    also note that qos performance decreases as more rules are added (=

    Thanks for your replies, guys.

    The IP range settings may not work because my ISP provides PPPoE service with dynamic IP.

    So, basically is better to switch on/off QoS services according to what I need to do with my bandwidth.

    If I will have the necessary time and get the IP range I will try that classification system.

    Thanks again for trying to help.

    Besides this problem - which is not the firmware's problem, Tomato rocks!
