Idea: Ultimate QoS Guide

    In an effort to reduce duplicate posts asking questions about QoS I propose we make a guide and sticky it.

    I think QoS has been thoroughly explained by myself and others in various posts, so perhaps the linksysinfo/tomato community can put together a thread, with pictures, thoroughly explaining QoS and possible configurations and the reasons for those configurations (since there is no "one way" of doing it right).

    It gets a bit annoying having to constantly explain QoS when the FAQ: QoS section already exists. So we obviously need to make this information more accessible.

    Just a thought. Maybe if I have enough free time I can pull together some older posts.

    This is a great point overall though not necessarily QoS related. For me i have started pushing back on posters to do a little leg work for information that i know is there. I personally will answer when i have to go read or look something up, but when i know it readily exists (basically have recently replied to the very topic being asked) I ask they do a little research first.

    Maybe the wikibooks article (or a new article?) would be the best place for this, then everyone can add to it easily. We could sticky a link to the page on the forum so newcomers don't miss it.

    There already is a sticky with that link. We need a big red flashing sticky instructing new comers to read the stickies we already have.

    hello ,

    thats a fantastic idea , i'm one of those ppl who post questions but i dont get the answer i want, i looked at the wiki but it doesnt really tells you how to setup qos yes it does give you a definition of the different sections but that doesnt help newbes like me.

    i'm tring to setup qos so that if any of the clients transfers more then 1mb of data they are dropped to a lower class.

    i've added 2 rules one which states that:
    "any ip with any protocol in both src and dst transfer 0kb-1024kb set class to high"

    the other:
    "any ip with any protocol in both src and dst transfer 1024+kb set class to low"

    it sounds simple but i just dont work!

    thank you.

    Try changing the second rule to start at 1025+kb. Since both rules have 1024 maybe it is getting confused when it hits 1024.
