    Hello I am new to these forums and am looking for help with my tomato setup. I have Asus RT-N66U running shibby tomato 1.12. My problem is when I am playing Xbox live (call of duty,halo) and another person in my house watches youtube it will disconnect me from the game saying "you have lost connection with the host". I do have QoS enabled and setup very similar to Toatsman's guide with only using 85% of my network bandwidth. I do have then xbox classification at the very top of the list as well is it being port forwarded. I have a dsl bridged setup. I don't know if it is a QoS problem or if I am missing a setting or something. Any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated and please excuse my ignorance on the subject.

    Please post a screenshot of your QoS settings and let us know what your speedtest.net numbers are.

    1 of your main problems with your set up is that you specified all of your unclassified traffic to be in your voip/game and that is a big problem. Beacause some of your unclassified traffic is eating your whole bandwith and leaving none to your xbox. And you also need to give your voip/game abit more bandwith. Xbox live uses port UDP 3074 For its online gaming classify this and make it a priority.

    Ok I switched it too P2P/bulk and now it's working better but I still get kicked from watching netflix. Youtube is no longer an issue because its classified. My next question is there a way to make a classification setting for netflix because right now it's going under P2P/Bulk? Or should I just adjust the percentages... Thank you for the help ^

    Yeah dude its a bummer because you have a low bandwith and netflix always tries to get all its videos to play at highest resolution and with you having other users on its always going to be struggling for more bandwith you currently have barely enought to play videos at 480p so at this point netflix is a luxury.

    I noticed that I get disconnected from live only when netflix is started and is at the loading screen before the video starts. I am slowly giving up on qos

    In your Netflix account, go to the settings page and change your "quality" to medium. That will limit Netflix to around 1.5 megabits/second and leave plenty of breathing room for browsing and gaming. You can also use the bandwidth limiter for the PC that is streaming Youtube and/or Netflix.

    Edit: BTW, don't combine BW limiter with QoS. It doesn't work properly in most builds.

    Ok thank you, I did set my netflix account too medium and it is working better on the start up and runs overall better... Now another strange thing is that I am booted from live matches when I close netflix. I noticed that the "services" classification starts up and is the rule for DNS when this happens so I am not sure why. Thanks again for your input, I feel like I am very close to solving this problem
