PostPosted: Tue Dec 12, 2006 7:08 pm    Post subject: dsl filter help QoS? Reply with quote Back to top

I just got AT&T dsl at my office and ran some speedtests (thx vonage-forum) and the upload is crap (92Kbps) compared to what they guaranteed as a minimum floor upstream (384Kbps). So I was talking to the AT&T tech trying to troubleshoot the line and he had me remove the filter from the line and plug the dsl modem straight into my jack. Now, my speed went up considerably (262Kbps), but still not great. BUT, the QoS is half - 93% down to mid-50%.

Do I just have a faulty filter? Does a filter typically provide a more steady flow of data and thereby increase the QoS? What's more important, a higher QoS or more upstream bandwidth?

My office will be running 2 dedicated Vonage voice lines and 1 dedicated fax. 5/6 machines will have very limited web access so the bandwidth conflict between surfing/downloading is not a consideration - My primary concern is making sure there is enough for the phones to work.

Many thanks for your help...

The DSL filter is put on the jacks that connect to a phone. There should not be a filter between the jack and the DSL modem. The filter "filters out" the DSL frequencies so you don't hear them on the telephone. Try a speed test on http://www.speedtest.net. I get better results with that. Also, due to the way the test works a fast computer with nothing else running will give a more accurate test.

Well, the DSL filter has two ports - one for the DSL modem and one for a phone/fax. I assumed this device that came with my DSL modem from AT&T was the proper piece of equipment to use.

Aren't the changes in the QoS worth noting between the use of their filter and not? So, my real question is, what is more important - the upstream bandwidth or the QoS from the speedtest that is located on this website?

Thank you.

Ok, That makes sense. The DSL port isn't filtered. If the speed and QoS change is reproducible and definitely changes with and without the filter I'd first try another filter. To answer your question, I'd go with the better QoS.
