    Hey guys, I'm fairly new to QOS, and I was hoping if what I've input to the router are the correct settings to maximize bandwidth for PS3 online gaming.

    I am running Tomato 1.21.
    I am on channel 6.
    The PS3 is given a static IP.
    Under 'Classification':
    Src IP: <The PS3's IP>


    Now, if I want to give the PS3 highest priority in order to prevent lag from online gaming, would it be under Dst IP, or Src IP/Src MAC?

    For Port Forwarding, I have 80,443,5223 as TCP, and 3478,3479,3658 as UDP.
    The last resort would be to DMZ the PS3, but I don't think it will be necessary if I have set this all up properly.

    Is there anything else I am missing?

    Your circled one is adequate. Just push it all the way up to become the first rule and it should be better.

    For the ports, would I put them under 'Dst' or 'Src' if I were to add them below?

    I never quite understood those two terms (assuming they are Destination and Source).

    QOS causes PS3 Nat error

    When I enable QOS and run a Network settings test Nat Type 2 gives the following error: The router in use may not support IP fragments, and the communication features of some games may be restricted. Please contact your router manufacturer...

    When I turn off QOS no error occurs. This happens with or without port forwarding and with or without UPnP.



    I'll try and link images from imageshack above. Hope it works. Any ideas.
