    I recently upgraded from Thibor 15c to the latest Tomato and have to say I am very impressed. My voip score jumped 3.8 to 4.4!!!. The QOS rocks in Tomato!


    My classification settings are to open ports 10000-20000 and set to Highest.

    I also noticed my wireless range has increased where it actually decreased when I upgraded to Thibor from the previous version.

    You may want to consider using a different QOS setting. Instead of giving anything on ports 10000-20000 the highest priority, regardless of which device the traffic comes from, I just give anything from the Vonage MAC address the highest priority. From watching the QOS details screen, I know that my WRTP54G opens up ports outside of that range from time to time and this insures that everything from the Vonage device has the highest priority.

    Well I did originally use the MAC only but Tomato reported the class as "lowest" until I opened these ports. I will experiment more and see which is best.

    Are you using IPP2P or Layer 7? I found that these screwed up the other classifications (although I don't recall the details right now). Now I'm just sticking to using MAC and ports to define QOS and things work the way I expect.

    just make the MAC address of your Vonage adapter have the highest priority, and make that rule the first rule. if it's not the first rule, then it's possible some other rule based on ports is going to match your voip traffic pattern first.

    I updated the class setting to MAC/any proto and now I see port 10,000 as well as other Vonage related ports as lowest??? Does it take awhile for Tomato to register theses changes?
    Also the rule is at the top any I am not using any IIP or Layer7 filters...


    EDIT--I waited for about 10 mins and port 10000,etc were still reporting as lowest. I then removed the MAC addy and replaced w/the IP addy and the ports went immeadiately to highest. Also is there any trick or something to eliminate one of the two IP's I have for my Vonage router? I currently have it set to static dhcp for the Lan ( then it has a WAN Router IP of which obviously connects to the Tomato (linksys) router. I see both of these IP's pop up in view details in Tomato.

    EDIT2--Umm, static routing??? Is that what I need to do?
