Configuration Assist..
« on: October 06, 2015, 08:41:14 PM »

OK, I have looked and searched before anyone flames me but to be honest everything I find reads like stereo instructions...
I just got an 860L and so far on localized machines its great.. but I have a WDMyCloudEx2 hosting media (mp4 and mp3.. Upstairs I have a boxee (wireless connection) and I admit I have several other people in my home using my internet (not intranet) and this thing buffers no matter what I try.. can somebody draw me a simple setup for QOS so that the boxee and cloud server override all other devices on the network so I can get rid of this buffering problem. Since its mainly at night its in use while in bed I dont give a rats *** about the other users on the network but they still have to have some use of the network.

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
  • What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?
  • What ISP Modem service link speeds UP and Down do you have? Link> Speed Testing Sites

Wireless Configurations
Links>Wireless Installation Considerations and Managing Signal Congestion and Good Neighbour Policy
  • Ensure the default (dlink) SSID name is changed. Ensure that different SSID names are used between each WiFi 2.4/5Ghz radios. Can be anything and not something that's already in use by any neighbouring WiFi routers. Under Setup/Wireless/Manual.
  • What wireless modes are you using?
  • What security mode are you using? Preferred security is WPA-Personal. WPA2/AES Only. Some WiFi adapters don't support AES, so you might want to try TPIK only or Auto TPIK and AES.

For any streaming, we recommend using hard wired LAN cable as wireless can be problematic along with having others on the same wifi radio doing other things.
If all devices are streaming from a external internet source, you can review this and look at the ALL Other devices rule and see if it will help:
 Gaming and QoS for XBL
You'll need one rule for the boxee box and another rule for ALL Other devices. You'll set the boxee box to 50 as a priority and All Other devices rule to 128 or maybe 200.

If the boxee box is only streaming from a internal file server source then I highly recommend getting it connected via GB LAN cable. It how I have mine set up.
