    i'm trying to setup QOS in the tomato firmware on my linksys wrt54gs, to..

    high prioritize: web browsing, and Games for Windows Live (street fighter iv), VOIP

    low prioritize: torrent downloads.

    I've left the settings to pretty much default. and have got the web browsing and torrents setup correctly (i think)

    But how do i add the "Games for WIndows" ports to a high priority?
    I found that the ports used for this service are:
    TCP 80, UDP 88, UDP 3074, TCP 3074, UDP 53, TCP 53

    also how does a VOIP box be set to a high priority in the QOS?

    i noticed after I ran a bandwidth test which uses a 600kb image file that the download test results actually goes slower with QOS on when I have torrents downloading in background. I tested it a few times, and its about 20% slower with QOS on. but then i realised that QOS low prioritzes files above 500kb, is that right? how do u guys go about testing the QOS rules are working correclty? is there some kind of simple tool to show it is all configured right?

    much appreciate any comments! thanks

    You are asking so many questions ....

    The fact is, you can set up QOS in an infinite number of ways. The default that comes set up in tomato is not particularly useful, especially for controlling P2P, but better than nothing. Read the thread in my signature for more information on how to get QOS working the way you want it, there is a sample setup near the bottom of the thread that will probably help, it should be a good basis.

    When posting for help on QOS, it is best to also post screenshots of your QOS basic/classification, and also Advanced/Conntrack details, so that others may help you.
