PostPosted: Wed May 18, 2005 2:22 am    Post subject: Bandwidth control Reply with quote Back to top

I have a RT31P2 linksys adapter and was wondering what I can change in settings to squeeze every last drop of bandwidth from my connection and allocate it to my phone.Whilst I care about my web surfing....my main priority is to have Vonage running smoothly whilst in use.So if this means that I wont be able to surf very well then so be it. Eek

Thanks

You need to provide some information about your local network setup. QoS settings are very dependent on your topology.

Is this what you mean?...

net connection->SMC router/modem(just a modem with the NAT and the firewall disabled now)->linksys->computer and phone.

Thanks

Yep - that was it.
You have a very straightforward setup. What should work just fine for you is to go the the web-admin page inside the RT31P2. Go to the "Application & Gaming" tab. Disable Application-base Qos and disable Port-based QoS. Enable Voice QoS and set the upstream rate to 256Kb/s. Hit "Save Settings". These may already be your default settings.
256 is a little higher than you need, especially if your Bandwidth Saver feature at Vonage is set below the max setting.
What is your Internet connection speeds from your ISP?

Somebody wrote a wonderful post about the correct way to set QoS on your Linksys router. I don't know where it is, you should do some searching.

They posted an equation that figures out the best number to set your QoS rate to, based on the upstream your ISP provides you.

The best setting for my situation was 460Kb/s. The number is very illogical, so it would be best to try and find that post.

If you set it too high or too low, you won't gain much of an advantage.

Where are your LAN workstations connected, to the "linksys," which I would take to mean the Voip Router? If you have a LAN, then it must sit at the same level or below the Voip Router for QoS to work. If your LAN and workstations are on the SMC Router then QoS will not work.

I took Jonboy's simple network description to mean that his phone and PC are hanging off the RT31P2 which makes sense.

Jonboy - the "Bandwidth Saver" setting at your Vonage homepage selects the bandwidth consumption for your phone connection. There are three settings (doing this from memory as the Vonage website is down at the moment) 30, 50 and 90. These numbers are kilobits-per-second. This setting actually determines which codec and settings your RT31P2 will use for the phone. The higher the number the higher the bandwidth your phone will use and in principal the higher the quality your call will be. I use the 50kbps setting and really cannot tell any difference in the quality compared to 90kbps.

Note that three-way-calls actually use more bandwidth but I'm not going to get into that in this thread.
