Re: QoS Routers that actually work.....

said by Mango:

Yes, it does.

What I would really like to be able to do, but currently can't, is throttle normal internet traffic to something extremely aggressive like 50%, but only when a VoIP call is in progress. This could compensate for internet connections with fluctuating speeds. Could pfsense do that?

Yes.

My morning coffee is still doing its magic, how would you do this in pfsense?

Using rate limiters?

In pfsense I have a certain IP range throttled down to just below the max of the DL and i have a certain PC throttled down to 1.2mbps.

We max out at 2 simultaneous calls in our system at a time... so although QoS would be a good thing, i have done ok without it for quite a time already.

My ISP actually does Guarantee at least 80% of the quoted 30/5 even during peak times.

I use a Netgear router FVS318G (my FVS338 was just as good). I have not experienced any SIP quality issues. I run 6 PCs but only two of them ever browse any videos. I run a 3CX PBX with six phones but we have a license limit of 4 calls. Those are run over two SIP trunks to Callcentric for the two businesses here. I can only get U-verse 1.5 Mpbs down and 384 Kbps up at this location. Even when I am choking the downstream with video, we don't have any audio issues on up to four calls.

+1 for pfsense, although I also like m0n0wall for small installations

So you have a Service Level Agreement with the ISP that guarantees you 80% ? What happens if the SLA fails to deliver and how do you measure that SLA?

They offer test utilities that can be obtained on a web site. If it is underperforming, I can phone them and it's promptly repaired.

It's not a super great lock, but I've used this method to rapidly get repairs dispatched twice over the course of usage.
