Netflix rule ?
« on: November 20, 2013, 12:00:01 PM »

I am having problems with watching Netflix and playing xbox at the same time, every time I am in a live match (Call of duty) I get disconnected from the host when I start up Netflix. I am using QOS and have my xbox set to the highest priority. I guess my main question would be how to setup a QOs rule to limit just Netflix from taking all the bandwidth. I dont know how to differentiate between regular web browsing and netflix seeing they use the same port. Any help would be greatly appreciated

How do you have GF set up right now? What is the priority setting for the xbox?
You'll need to set up another rule for the netflix streamer device and set a 128 priority setting I believe. And you'll need to maybe lower the xbox priority to say 50? Test that out and see if it helps.

What ISP modem mfr and model do you have?
What ISP Speeds up and down that you pay for?

Review the 4500s XBL GF sticky for rule setup:

It follows the sticky and is set to 1 priority.

D/L 320KB/s U/L 50 KB/s

Actiontech Gt701d in bridge mode

Netflix only allowed to stream medium quality for my account.

Lastly is there a way to limit netflix and not each individual device because there about 5 potential devices that can be used (ipad, iPhone, laptops, xbox, ps3) ?

Try setting the priority for the xbox rule to 50 instead of 1. Set the rule for the netflix devcies to 128.

Not sure if your ISP speeds are enough to handle both gaming and video streaming. Thats pretty low ISP speeds...

I'm wondering if your ISP speed is the problem.

Is Dynamic Defrag enabled or disabled?

I think for your speeds it might need to be enabled...

It follows the sticky and is set to 1 priority.
