tomato QoS + SPA2102

    Ok I'm using Tomato v1.24 on a Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 Router with a Linksys SPA2102 attached to it. Rogers Cable is my ISP

    I just switched from DD-WRT because the QoS was sub-par. I set up my QoS based on instructions I found on a website [HOW-TO: QoS and Tomato (fixes "choppy voice")]. Without much internet traffic, the VoIP line works great, but once I start using bittorrent, it makes the voice quality choppy. I should rephrase that, I can hear the person I'm speaking to perfectly fine, but they hear me choppy. I notice this more when seeding/uploading rather than just downloading. It's the bittorrent uploading that causes the most trouble.

    Check out the screenshots of my QoS setup below:

    When I first set it up, I did not have the following Classifications because I didn't think I needed them:
    - uTorrent (by port)
    - uTorrent (by IPP2P)
    - FreePhoneLine.ca RTP voice 2

    and I also had the FreePhoneLine.ca RTP voice 1 set to only ports 10000-20000. I've changed since because I've been fooling around with different setups, but I can't seem to find the right settings for it to not be choppy while seeding torrents.

    One thing I found weird was that even after setting all three bittorrent classications (by L7, IPP2P and port), if I go to the View Graphs I see a large part of the pie is "Unclassified" and if I click the details, 1/2 to 2/3 of the connections have my bittorrent port in the Source column. So I'm wondering why the QoS isn't placing the bittorrent-port-related connections into the Lowest classification as I've specified. Thats when I added the other 2 uTorrent rules thinking it would make a difference. It did take some of the port-specific bittorrent traffic out of the Unspecified section, but there are still a LOT left.

    Please help
