    I've successfully flashed my Buffalo router to Tomato v1.16. I just wanted your opinions on my QoS settings.

    My top priority is web-browsing. After that comes mail and irc. At the bottom, there's p2p.

    I've deactivated Prioritize ACK because some say that it can flood the connection when there's p2p traffic involved. Prioritize ICMP I've kept disabled since it was the default.


    Also, I think I've aleady noticed that my web-browsing is much snappier. Kudos to Tomato.:biggrin:

    Edit: I've since then added 1863,5222,5050 in the medium settings for msn,jabber,yahoo respectively.

    If you disable prioritize ack, you'll cause p2p/torrents to slow down dramatically, although it is the lowest priority anyways. You'll be kicked to the lowest in the queue and remain there for a long time. Test it out and you'll see.
