Using Alchemy Final with Vonage Voip on v2 hardware

    Hey - I searched for help through the forums, but most seem to say what I've done already. The QoS doens't seem to be doing anything - I've got the ethernet port that is hooked to the VOIP adaptor set on "premium" and all major normal protocols set on "bulk" - torrents, http, etc. For redundancy sake, I also set SIP protocol set on Premium as well.

    I'm using cable lite, and actually get slightly higher bandwidth than the specced amounts for some reason (soft cap, I guess) so I have the modem set with the spec levels (300bps in, 150 out).

    I have the QoS being applied at WAN level.

    Now, the problem is that if I surf, or run torrent, etc. I still cut up the Voip calls. Anybody know what I'm missing?

    Thanks in advanced. Any additional thoughts would be appreciated.

    I've been having similar problems, except the QoS works, almost too well. When I set the VOIP port to Premium it's constantly using that 90% bandwidth. So then my downloads/surfing instantly go down. Even when I'm not using the phone it's reserving that bandwidth. Any ideas? I'm using Alchemy-V1.0 v3.37.6.8sv on my WRT54G v2.0.

    QoS is dependent on with your settings are for Upload and Download speeds. Don't forget to use the 90% for your bandwidth settings, meaning only account for 90% of you allocated bandwidth from your ISP.

    Pxtl: Make sure you don't account for any "extra" bandwidth you are recieving over an above what your ISP is provdiding. Bandwidth is depended on network traffice so during peak hours you probably are not getting over what you should be. You might not want to set QoS on both the port and SIP as it wouldn't make sense. Use the SIP permium and remove the QoS settings on the port. If you have computer X downloading a torrent and using your phone, your torrent will win over the QoS set on the port (I could be wrong however). I don't think a mixture of ports and service QoS will work to well together.
