    Hi there. I've been messing about with QoS for a few weeks now, tried searching for some explanations/guides, but nothing seemed to help me out too much. So I thought I'd try asking here.

    Running latest version of tomato - Tomato Firmware v1.27.1798

    I'm an avid warcraft player and quite often I get unbearable latency due to other people in the house downloading/uploading whatever.

    My current internet connection is with virgin, advertised at 10Mb. Upload speed is pretty poor at about 40Kbs.

    So in QoS Basic settings I set outbound at 320kb/s and inbound at 10240kb/s.
    Highest is of course 1-100% and 100% and to keep things simple for now, lets stick just use lowest which is at 1%-10% (3-32kbits) outbound and 10% inbound.
    (Values can of course be changed, but for testing purposes this is what I have been trying)

    Each person in the house has a static ip address. So in classification I used the From IP option, entered their IP, chose any protocol all ipp2p filters.

    For world of warcraft I chose From - My IP. TCP/UDP and selected World of warcraft in the Layer 7 drop-down box.

    With all of this set-up like this, and then enabling QoS, it makes my latency a LOT worse. I'm not sure why this is, and from what I can personally see in the settings I chose, it should be filtering out the bandwidth of most others and a majority going to me. If anyone could help me figure this out, would be kindly appreciated.

    You need to post your ISP connection speeds (measured) and screenshots of your QOS - Basic, Classifications and Conntrack page before we can assist. You might care to read through the thread below which will help you set up QOS. IPP2P and L7 filters don't work too well. That is why most commercial routers with the magic "click this magic button for instant relief from all of your problems" rarely work properly.
