What I do is give my Phone Adapter's MAC address premium bandwidth. That way all packets that come out of the Phone Adapter has maximum bandwidth - it works well this way.

The Belkin Pre-N F5D8230-4 provides each one of 4 Ethernet LAN ports with Auto QoS capability so no additional parameters need to be set.

On some Routers one would have to associate QoS with Port/device MAC address etc --- not so on the Belkin Pre-N F5D8230-4 or the Linksys WRT54GX -- both devices use the Airgo Networks True.MIMO chipset technology.



Hmmm in this case the sending device will have to tag the packets as premium bandwidth... otherwise there is nothing you can do to configure the router. Until all applications categorize their priority... the auto QoS might not be all that useful.

It may not be useful for you -- that I can understand -- for me it works just great -- perhaps you should spend a little quality time prioritizing your packets and getting up to speed. Very Happy Idea

Mozerd, I'm just a little curious here (and thankful for your post, I'm just startig to consider dipping my toes into the Voip pool), but have you switched to another Voip provider at this point, or have you gone back with your old POTS?

Cheers

Yes, I have switched to TalkBroadband [Primus]. The reason for my switch was due to what I considered was horrible Vonage Customer Care at the Time I subscribed. I was very pleased with the Voip service Vonage provided insofar as the Telephone aspect was concerned -- however for me Customer Care is just as important as the Telephone service. Perhaps Vonage have fixed the Customer Care issues by now -- however I am very pleased with my TalkBroadband service including Primus Customer Care.

Thank you Mozerd for responding. I am happy to hear your Voip experiences have improved Smile.

Sorry to trouble you again (as a newbie to this I try to rely on the experience of the Voip pros) but I hope you can pass on a little advice. I am currently in the process of one day moving into my new house. I will be buying a new computer soon and currenlty there I have not contacted Bell with regards to a home phone. If I'm considering Voip (and in the Toronto area) and am still deciding between Vonage and Primus, is there a wireless router you would reccomend that features QOS, can be used between either Vonage or Primus, and does not necessarily have to blow the budget. I do not forsee having a huge network at home, but could forsee in the future maybe two computers, an X Box, maybe a wireless MP3 player for the kitchen, two or 3 phones...

oops, sorry this post became longer than I thought.

cheers Smile

In trying to evaluate Primus as I'm doing with Vonage, I tried to contact Primus' customer care at least 4 times. Each time the wait time was over 20 minutes. After finally deciding to wait it out, after 55 minutes, I got cut off by their system. With Vonage, I got through their customer service department each time within 5 minutes.

Unless you've been using another toll free number to what I'm using (1-800-806-3273, option 3 then 1), Primus' customer service is non existant and I won't even get a chance to use them because of this poor service.

If anyone doesn't believe me, try to contact Primus' customer service dept. using the number above and compare with Vonage Canada's customer service dept. at 1-877-272-0528. You will know what I mean...

I would recommend the Belkin Pre-N Router if you're going to go wireless. The Pre-N will blow your budget [Router + Network interface adapters are expensive] however no other Router IMO compares -- You can read about the Pre-N at this following link: http://www.itexpertoncall.com/mimo/215.html
and make sure to look up all the reference links. The issues with wireless routers has nothing to do with the size of your network -- but it has everything to do with end-user satisfaction. Being penny wise and pound foolish will without a shadow of doubt bit you hard in the wireless arena. Finally make sure NOT to go DSL ... I recommend the Rogers High Speed Extreme service I do not recommend any other Rogers incarnation of that service Smile
Regardless of who [Vonage or Primus] you go with insofar as Voip the Pre-N device will provide excellent results.

Mozerd,

Based on your recommendation of the Belkin router that you mention, I bought one off of ebay and am awaiting delivery. When you say "network interface adapters" are expensive, what do you mean? Do I not just need the Belkin router, and in my case, the PAP2 adapter to get my Voip service running and my wireless at home?

The PAP2 is a Phone adapter that will be connected to one of the 4 LAN ports on the Belkin Pre-N Router via a Ethernet Cable. If you do not plan on going wireless then you do not need to buy any Pre-N Network adapters -- Pre-N network adapters cost $120 in Canada and are used with Laptop computers. Pre-N Network adapters have special characteristics that exploit the Pre-N wireless technology.

Mozerd, thanks for the response. if, for the time being, I did not want to take advantage of the Pre-N features, could I continue to use my 802.11g wireless network adapters built into my laptop to communicate to the Belkin router? Is it backwards compatible or will I be forced to buy Pre-N network adapters now?

You mentioned that the Pre-N network adapters are about $120. Where were you able to find them in Canada?
