Well, if you spent $69 on it, you didn't get cheated. So that's fine. IF the QoS is working, then that's great.

I strongly suspect that "StreamEngine" is a marketing term, and that (no offense) your understanding that the ISP must have QoS for it to work is not correct. It IS possible, however, that this model of router is capable of learning the max bandwidth rate directly from your modem rather than guessing at it, and if that's the case, that is very good.

Did you have to enter any guesses as to your "upstream" bandwidth into the router anywhere? If not, and if QoS is working well, then they do have a really good QoS algorithm.

QoS is fairly simple. Your modem has an upstream and a downstream speed limit on it. If you can tell your router what that upstream limit is, your router can "shape" the traffic by delaying or in extreme loads even dropping low priority packets to make room for high priority ones. This guarantees that the important stuff goes through first and fast. Some QoS (like yours, and that on the WRT54G and its aftermarket variants like mine) do very well. Others (like anything I've seen from Vonage) do not.

The biggest influence on working QoS is that your router *MUST* know the upstream data rate. If it doesn't, then it has no clue how to shape the traffic. Get it too low, and your router bottlenecks you more than it has to. Get it too high, and QoS is ineffective because your router is allowing too much low-priority traffic in line and you might as well not have QoS.

The Vonage units do poorly (I think) because they use the standard Linksys algorithm for calculating upstream bandwidth. The "Auto" setting on my Linksys told me that my 256k upload was 1,565k, which means the QoS was useless. By manually tuning the upstream bandwidth using aftermarket firmware on another non-Vonage Linksys router, I was able to get working QoS.

So, if your router succesfully calculated upstream and is working very well, then BRAVO! That unit's a keeper and no mistake! Especially at the price. Even if you had to manually tune it, then it's a fair deal. A comparable Linksys router goes for $70.

PS: You cannot influence the packet rate of data coming back to you without somehow affecting packet priority on the OTHER side of your cable/DSL modem, which ain't gonna happen, so there really isn't an effective "inbound QoS" on a standard consumer grade connection. QoS is outbound only for anything you and I are likely to play with.
