PostPosted: Wed Aug 15, 2007 1:54 pm    Post subject: Going with the WRTG54GL...which Firmware Offers Best QoS?? Reply with quote Back to top

I went from the RTP31 to the VT2542 and have been less than impressed with voice quality with either of those devices. The 2542 is even more of a pain in the ass because it won't hold the settings and every time it reboots it's back to the defaults which breaks all connectivity since my internal IP scheme doesn't match it's default and the wireless turns off.

I called Vonage this AM to attempt to return the 2542 but after spending 20 minutes on hold decided I'll call back late tonight when the wait times are shorter.

That said, I just bought a new WRTG54GL and am interested in folks opinions on which non-standard firmware folks are using and having the best experience with QoS? DD-WRT, Tomato, Hyper-WRT/Tofu, Sveasoft, etc...??

I'm also just going to buy one of the stand-alone devices (like PAP) to plug my phone into. Anyone have any recommendations there as well that create a good router/phone combo?

I switched from DD-WRT to Tomato myself. DD-WRT offers a lot of eye candy which I never got round to using, while Tomato has a very clean interface and QoS rules are really very good the SVG bandwidth chart is also useful. Still, try both of them and see what suits your needs better. Just remember to reset the router after flashing different firmwares!

As far as which adapter to pair with your GL, I believe all ATA's Vonage is currently offering are Texas Instruments. So they should theoretically have the same audio quality. I would go with a PAP2 version 2 as you don't seem to need NAT/Routing features. If you need more ports you could just get a VT2442 and use it as a switch / DHCP relay, although I wouldn't put my money on Vonage devices as networking equipment, better to get a cheapo swtich instead. So all in all I would say PAP2 is the way to go.

what do you mean reset?

Shouldn't the router reboot itself after uploading a new firmware version? Is rebooting the same as resetting or is there something else that needs to be done?

You need to restore factory defaults either by the soft option in the GUI or by hard resetting it. Just a reboot while flashing different firmwares will not work properly.

Hi,
When you get WRT54GL or Buffalo we can create an image just for your configuration, it is based on latest tomato and will have all the QoS installed and configured. You should be able to run torrents, download files concurrently with Voip connections with no visible degradation in voice quality. We have been testing it with several people and it has been working great. If you are interested let me know and we can add you to the test group.

Sounds good,
I have a list of questions which needs to be answered before we can build it for you. How do I contact you?
