Can I do this with Qos???

    Ok, I have the upload Qos set up for VoIP and it is working fine. Basically I have the IP address of the VoIP ATA set as the highest and set the upload speed to 90% of my max. However, I noticed the other day when I was downloading a large file that on my end of the call (download side) the quality was bad until I paused the download. This is where it gets tricky... My download speed is guaranteed at 1500 kbps but fluctuates up to 4 Mbps. I don't want to cap this in the Qos since it varies but would like to always make sure that the ATA gets at least 100kbps before the downloads get anything. I know download control in Qos is iffy at best since it is just dropping packets forcing the source to slow down but was just wondering if this was possible.

    Hi Reiper,

    maybe you should give WRT Script Generator a try :wink:

    I saw that but I was wondering if you can "reserve" bandwidth for a device without setting a ceiling? Looks like a pretty cool script generator though!

    try capping the upload speed in your download app...

    Well I'm going to give the download portion of Tomato's Qos a shot before I try the script generator... If it works it should give me what I'm looking for. See if this makes sense... I entered my average download speed as 2000 kbps and then only set the "low" classification to 80% (leaving the rest as the default "none") so it should only get up to 1600 kbps leaving at least 400 kbps for anything else. Based on the default Qos settings, only downloads greater than 512K should be assigned the low classification so normal web browsing and small downloads should be unaffected?
