Re: Start Communications - new TPIA Rogers/Cogeco

Last night I flashed my Netgear router to run on a recent version of DD-WRT firmware and enabled QOS to give VOIP a "premium" or maximum bandwidth. I suspect this may have something to do with poor results tonight. Here are the speedtest.net results AFTER I disabled QOS feature, at the same time Outpost Free firewall suite is still being suspended:
I think for now I will disable QOS in the router as long as the quality of VOIP phone conversations is not affected.

Thanks for the followup. I seem to recall someone else having this exact problem with DD-WRT a week or two back in the Start forum (can't seem to find the reference now), but same thing: slower speeds, then went direct to modem and no problem. If I recall, they did the same thing and ended up disabling QoS.

Run the latest firmware and QoS is fixed.

Hi geokilla,

By "the latest firmware" do you mean DD-WRT SP24 Build 18946?

I am using eko Build 17990 mini.
