    Hi, folks,
    I installed tomato 0.04 and here I have few questions about the QoS setting.

    In my home network, there is PC1 which has P2P program installed. Another PC2 has a program(tvants) to watch online TV which also based on P2P. I also have a PAP2 VoIP gateway configed with two ports.

    My internet cable upload is between 350k to 450k.

    So here are my questions:
    1. On QoS Basic setting: I should put the lower number - 350 - in the "Max Bandwidth", right?

    2. I want my VoIP box be the highest priority. The default highest 80% to 100%, which means 280k to 350k. I use G711 for the VoIP lines so it probley need 200k is the two lines are talking at the same time. So I think I need lower the highest to 150K to 300K which means 43% to 100%. Does this sounds good?

    3. On the Classification page for Outbound setting, what is the best way to set it up? If the setting is mixed with MAC, Port and L7, which one take effect first?

    Thanks for help.

    1) - use the lower setting of 350
    2) - not sure on this one. i need to think it over (its far too late/early at the moment for me) but my personal settings for this are

    Highest - 50% - 100%
    High - 25% - 100%
    Medium - 15% - 100%
    Low - 5% - 100%
    Lowest - 3% - 100%

    3) If the settings are mixed up then the one that comes at the top of the list will be exicuted first, then the second on in the list and so on untill it reaches the bottom. You can change the order arround using the green arrows in the right hand corner.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I made few changes and will see what 's going to happen. It's seems Tomato need some good documentation to be done very very urgent. :)

    dont forget that it is a baby in the firmware world (so ive gathered) from what i can tell there arnt that many of us using it.

    On point 2)
    The way things work (in my head at least) is that if you have a program that needs X ammount of bandwidth and you stuff it in the highest catagory, its guarenteed a minimum of (in my set up) 50%. If it dosent require that 50% then its given as much as it needs and delt with as quickly as possible.

    Confirmation (or more likely denile :D ) of this would be appreciated from other users tho

    I also have VoIP box and have just created classification to add it to Highest class based on Src IP. And it works. Never changed percentage on QoS/Basic page. IMHO just put this IP in Highest class and expertiment a little bit - it should work OK.
