PostPosted: Sun Oct 01, 2006 6:46 pm    Post subject: VT2442 and QoS? How to make it more aggresive? Reply with quote Back to top

Hi all!

I've been a happy Vonage user for few months and love the Motorola VT2442 router!

I've been wondering if anyone could offer me some advice... I download a lot and I use bittorrent quite frequently. When I use BT and Vnage phone at the same time, the phone's service sounds just awful. Is there a way to set VT2442 so that when the phone is in use, it throttles all other activity and gives full amount of bandwidth to the voice? I have looked into VT2442's settings and IP QoS is enabled:

Enable IPQoS: Checked
Trusted Mode: Checked

Is there anything else I could do to give even more priority to voice traffic once it's in use?

Thanks!

You probably won't like this answer, but I suspect the best solution to that problem is to get a really good router and put it in front of the VT2442. The Vonage routers are notoriously poor at demanding network applications. Keep in mind also that the QoS settings can't do a heck of a lot on the downlink except clear traffic as quickly as possible. They can't prevent other traffic from being given priority at the other end of the pipe.

At first I plugged my VT2442 into my Belkin Pre-N router. This worked fine except under load. I then reversed the connection and QoS seems to be properly applied.

I should do some more testing to make sure it's working as well as I think it is. I don't do a whole lot of bittorrent but any download from a fast site could saturate the pipe to the extent that it interferes with the voice call.

Did this work? I too have a VT2442. I don't have a router beside the one that Vontage gave me. I have been playing with the QoS settings and found no settings for High Priority in a MAC address.

My question is... getting a router (that has QoS like a WRT54GL) will be efficient. I don't want to waste money for it, if it doesn't work.

Thanks,

The vt2442 by default prioritizes Voip traffic over all other traffic. If this is the only router you have, attached directly to your cable modem, it should work fine. However, as mentioned above, heavy downloads can quickly saturate your bandwidth limit (which bittorrent is famous for), and there's not much you can do about that. I don't think a new router will help in this case, but you can try.

I don't believe there is any way to make the vt2442 more agressive with regards to prioritizing traffic. It either does, or it doesn't. Any of the QoS settings in the vt2442 interface won't affect the built in phone adapter. Those QoS settings are to configure QoS for other devices I believe.

However, if you have the vt2442 behind another router, then you will need to setup QoS on that router to prioritize all traffic coming from the vt2442. I tried both setups with my wrt54gs, and eventually placed the vt2442 up front and everything else behind it, and left all settings at their defaults, and I believe this works best, for me anyway.
