    Hi, I got a WAG54V2 (UK), when ever I try to enable QoS, the whole connection just dies, can't load any webpage, instant messengers offline etc.

    I don't know what is the problem, i'm currently using Firmware Version: 1.01.22, Qos Type is UBR and I didn't change any setting on QoS except HTTP to high priority.

    Just want to ask is there any fix on this problem, will upgrading the firmware solve it?

    Thanks :biggrin:

    Your firmware is old, upgrade to 1.02.00 !

    and it will still do the same!
    I wait to get a home router that can handle QOS any where near like the ones at work do. Or one that you can actluy configure in any meaning full way.

    QoS is a cpu intensive task, and when asked to do all the other things that
    the relitivy cheap home routers are now being asked to do. they jsut dont have the power to do a real job.

    I found if i turned on Qos at its defult setting then will http at high prioty it made little difference. And when waht it would most be useful for is for traffice from games, or media servers, can't often be set up on it. and if they can normaly only one at a time.
    I found the gains you got on it really arnt worth the hassle.

    If you want proper QOS then you need to spend a little more than 50 or 60 quid unfortunatly. I got this router partly for the QOS function and i would have a big use for it. But this is one part of the router that i have turned of and left of.
