PostPosted: Thu May 04, 2006 8:49 pm    Post subject: Qos possible with WRTP54G? Reply with quote Back to top

I want to give my phone the highest priority so I can run bitorrent on my
computer without having to turn it off when I get a call. I have even set a limit on the torrent program to use only half of the tested upstream bandwidth leaving 192kb/s for the phone; however i still get choppy voice (well i dont, the person I am talking to does)

Of course I see an option for QOS on the router, but everything is set to a low priority, and without an option for Voip. Has anyone got any pointers?

Yes, one big pointer. Give up. Now.

Seriously, I have a WRTP54G, and not only does the QoS not work well on it, it also cannot support BitTorrent for any length of time. I wasted countless hours over several months researching, tweaking, resetting, watching the WAF (*) drop like a stone, and generally being miserable.

Finally, in desperation (exasperation is more like it), I put a Linksys WRT54GL with aftermarket firmware in front of the WRTP54G, turned off wireless on the WRTP54G and turned it into a Vonage-only device. I will say that the WRTP54G is a most excellent Vonage device if it isn't bogged down with networking and wireless overhead. And the WRT54GL has great QoS and great BitTorrent support.

To help out, I typed up articles on what you are looking for, why the WRTP54G ain't gonna cut it, and how to configure the WRT54GL if you go that route.

Yes, it's extra money. The WRT54GL will set you back $70. Figure how many months' savings that will be, and decide whether it is worth it to you. At my billing rate, if I could have billed the time I spent trying to fix this, I probably blew several thousand dollars trying to avoid this $70 fix.

Others have reported success with simply putting a Hawking Broadband Optimizer HBB1 in front of their WRTP54G or other Vonage device, but in your case this will not fix your BitTorrent problem. Best to kill two birds with one stone.

The problem I am having with the WRT54G is that its QoS feature cannot handle more than 6.5Mbps of downstream bandwidth. The CPU of this router is not powerful enough to handle any more. If I turn off the QoS, I get my full 1000K/s but when turned on, it will max out at 650K/s.

That really ****. Sad
