    For those of you using Tomato, I was wondering if anyone has used the Qos? I'm trying to figure out how to set an ata to the highest priority (either through IP or MAC address).

    Well I set the SRC IP to (Static IP of the ATA device), Set it to "Highest", set the DST Port to Any Port and left IPP2P and Layer 7 as disabled. Hopefully this will work?

    I had some success with this the other day, after initial problems, using a WRT54G v4.

    The QOS rules run from most restrictive to least restrictive, so move the rules you want to have the most importance to the top of the list, using the arrows at the top right of each item. It took me a while to get the order correct, so a less restrictive rule wasn't interfering with one of the more important ones.

    I set up my VOIP adapter to highest priority using mac address. I also run bittorrent, so I set up another rule based on the source port I am using, for both TCP and UDP. My son plays online games, so I set up further rules for the ports that needs, setting them to high.

    With all that in place, I was able to run bittorrent, make a VOIP call, have my son play his online game and also have streaming audio playing with no discernible performance hit on any of them.

    The default QOS setup for Tomato already has a few rules in QOS - Classification.. dns, www, and most non-essential services. Is it a good idea to delete those if I plan to do the following..

    my voip ata - highest priority - based on mac address
    my xbox - high priority - based on mac address

    Only other thing on my network is a couple of wireless clients that I won't input into Tomato's QOS and instead just let them use the default unclassified settings which is Low Priority.

    Slightly off topic, but I am in need of a good QoS-tutorial - preferably for the Tomato-firmware (I want to tweak things for my 6000/768 ADSL-line).
    Any links to such article(s) known?

    bokh -

    Here is a QoS introductory article I wrote (mostly for Vonage VoIP users, but you may find some relevant or useful information there):

    Thanks a bunch, Natheoy!

    And you got some other nice Linksys-related docs on your site too, one directory up!
    About this one: http://vonage.nmhoy.net/thibor14qos.html - anyone feels like "translating" that into Tomato?
