Vonage The QoS in the RTP300 works some of the time, and it doesn't work some of the time.

The QoS in the RTP300 works some of the time, and it doesn't work some of the time. If it works for you, then consider yourself one of the Lucky Ones and use it, if you prefer. Obviously, given Datahazard's note, the QoS is working well for him, which is great. I've also helped out a lot of people for whom it does not work at all.

Personally, I have the wireless variant of the RTP300 (the WRTP54G) and the QoS was utterly useless on my connection. I believe it is because the router is unable to calculate how much data can be sent from me to my ISP (my "upstream" speed).

Simple test is to upload a large file to a web site or FTP server, then call someone while the upload is happening, If they complain about bad or choppy audio, then you have a problem. And unlike many routers, the RTP300 does not allow you to fix QoS issues - it has no place to manually override the upstream speed calculation if it happens to be wrong.

However, read the article below - QoS will not help you on the "inbound" audio, because it only prioritizes outbound data. You'll have to get a newsgroup reader that can throttle downloads, and reserve 90K for Vonage.

So, after months of frustration over that and the router crashing due to P2P defects in the firmware, I went out and bought a WRT54G (the "real" router several people have alluded to) and put aftermarket firmware on it (HyperWRT Tofu), and disabled the wireless on my WRTP54G and relegated it to Vonage duty ONLY.

My calls became clearer instantly. My network stays up for weeks at a time, even under constant heavy P2P load. And tuned and working QoS means my Vonage calls are ALWAYS clear, no matter what else is running on my connection at the time. I'm on a very limited 256k upstream, and

Now, your experience may vary on this. If the RTP300's QoS actually works for you, then you can decide which device you want out front. But in all honesty, my generally-preferred method is to put the Vonage devices BEHIND a router you control. That way, a new firmware upgrade from Vonage won't bring down your LAN. Only your Vonage line.

Obviously, there are differing opinions on that. One possible way to configure it is with the RTP300 out front, and your WRT54G router set with a manual upstream of tested upstream bandwidth minus 90k for Vonage. That would "reserve" 90k for Vonage and give you working QoS if the RTP300's QoS doesn't work for you but you want it out front.
