    I'm having a really hard time setting up QoS. I want to increase my internet speed download and upload, but it's just really hard to understand. I've read all of the QoS topics and it just doesn't make sense at all to me...

    Additional info:


    2wire modem 2701hb-g
    linksys wireless router wrt54gl 1.1
    Tomato RAF 1.28

    Help pleeeeease.

    QoS does not speed up your internet, it only prioritises traffic

    Oh really? Some people say that it does. anyways, I copied Toastman's settings for the Advanced > Conntrack / Netfilter. should I change some stuff?

    Here are my settings:

    QoS > Basic Settings

    Basic Settings

    Outbound Rate / Limit

    Inbound Limit

    TCP Vegas network congestion control

    QoS > Classification

    Outbound Direction

    Advanced > Conntrack / Netfilter


    TCP Timeout

    UDP Timout, Other Timeouts, Tracking / NAT helpers, Miscellaneous

    As the old adage goes.. If you make EVERYTHING a priority, nothing is more important that anything else.

    Please read Toastmans post about QOS. That should enlighten you. You have a LOT that needs to be changed

    While we might talk about QOS speeding up traffic, all QOS can really do is slow traffic down. It's usefulness is that it can slow down some traffic more than others.

    QOS can never speed up the existing WAN connection, just make selected traffic slower.

    So, for example, one might define VoIP as highest priority. That doesn't make VoIP any faster, but tells the router to slow down other traffic so VoIP can get through while you're doing other stuff.

    If you define everything as "highest", you might as well just turn off QOS and skip the overhead.

    Just turn off all QoS. It'll be better for you.
