Vonage BitTorrent has been running with NO throttling on my 3000 down / 256 up connection,

BitTorrent has been running with NO throttling on my 3000 down / 256 up connection, using a WRT54G (with aftermarket firmware) on an old DOCSIS 1.0 modem. My router has been up with zero defects for 10 days, 4.5 hours. It only went down 10 days ago because a newer version of the aftermarket firmware came out and I wanted to experiment with it. Before that, it was up on the previous version of the firmware, BitTorrent running unthrottled the entire time, for 35+ days.

My Vonage calls are crystal clear. I make multiple VPN connections that stay up for days or weeks. I connect to about 10 instant messenger servers, including two encrypted SameTime connections, one over a single VPN and one over a double-chained VPN connection, and I rarely if ever get reconnects on those (more often than not, the actual servers are down, and not my connection, but it generally happens less than once a week).

So, yes, it IS possible.

Here's a little information on QoS for you:

Your first priority is to get QoS in general working. It is doubtful that you will be able to do that on a Vonage-supplied router. Sorry. That's the breaks.

I fought that concept for a month, with the router crashing daily with BitTorrent and at least every 4-5 days without it. I bought a WRT54G (now known as the "WRT54GL"), loaded up the aftermarket firmware, learned a LOT about QoS and network configuration in a few days, and got it all dialed in. Now it Just Works.

Rather sad, actually. With just a couple of very minor tweaks, the WRTP54G and RTP300 could be SOLID routers. They are good Linux based units, and have the hardware and memory to be darned fine routers. All it takes is an adjustment to /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_tcp_timeouts and the ability to manually specify the upstream bandwidth.

But since you can't get in to a command line due to them being locked down, and "unlocking" them renders them unuseable on the Vonage network, well, I took some of the money I was saving and bought myself a router that *I* control. No hard feelings toward Vonage - I understand why they are locking this stuff down. But, frustratingly enough, if they made a single UI change and a single network configuration change, I think they'd have a VERY nice router on their hands, even for BitTorrent, and with solid working QoS.

This came up in another thread and I thought it was off topic so I'll ask over here.
All I know is if you have a QoS enabled router bittorrent will not affect your telephone
BitTorrent/P2P affects Vonage in possibly two ways, depending on your configuration. 1.

Very simply - cost. It's not cheap to make a device capable of doing true QoS. I'm

Understand that QoS will probably not help out with test calls from the same computer
