    I have a WAG354G Firmware 1.01.05
    3 PC's are connected most of the time
    1 through LAN
    2 through Wi-Fi
    tesco 2MB connection

    I play Battlefield 1942 Dc and BF2 through one of the Wi-fi PC's and this is normally fine
    until someone uses one of the other pc's for MSN with web cam or video/mp3 download.
    My Battlefield ping goes sky high and it ruins my game.
    How can I share the bandwidth more equal or make Battlefield top priority.
    I don't want to block MSN/web can totaly just throttle it.. and get battlefield
    top dog.

    can any one help please

    The QoS of the WAG354G is not as sgood as the WRT however. try enabling the BF2/1942 Ports to have High Priority and everything else low.

    software would only control the priority after it gets to your PC only, if you have multiple PC's you wont be able to do that

    Never played around with it much. as i found the QOS on home linksys routers is very wanting!!!
    however it is possible to run QOS on a net work adapter. (you may see it if you look at the propities of one of the network adapters on you PC if it is installed)
    this will try to help proritise traffice sent from your pc out of the NIC.
    Alsoif you have an application that alows it (some bittorrent cients) you can make the program assign packet markers to its traffice, that the Computer will then act on, when its is sending traffice out of its NIC.
    (but like was said this is a per-PC solution)
    However i have no idea if the Firmware of a linksys router will react to these flags. If it does then you could in theroy use this to protories the traffice.

    Any one know much about the QOS system used in a linksys router??
