4500 QoS Question
« on: July 23, 2009, 08:52:23 AM »

Maybe I'm doing this wrong?

I wanted to do some QoS with GameFuel so that my Roku netflix player had the most bandwidth besides games.  So I setup a reserved IP for the Roku Player,  created and enabled a GameFuel profile for that IP,  all ports,  outgoing ip was 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 etc so full scope.  And set a priority of 5.

Under internet logs it shows proper priority coming through of 5.  I do a lot of NZB newsgroup downloads with my Popcorn Hour a-100.  Sooo I configure another gamefuel rule for that,  same etc,  and set it to priority of 255 and proceed to download some newsgroup files.

The PCH was able to drown out my Roku causing it to re-buffer over and over and was drawing 120-130k (this is a 1.5mb dsl fastest I can get) which has a max throughput of 158k or so.  Am I doing this wrong?  I can cap the PCH downloads from the PCH but was really hoping to get some real QoS out of this router.

edit. Course I should note my firmware version is 1.20

QoS does not affect your download speeds.  Only upload.
