ADSL Quality of service





deathstrikers
Why have no-one been able to get a proper qos for adsl. I understand the complexity of the technology and it relying on so many variables,... but.. with all the technology available today, surely there should be some light at the end of the tunnel.

if your router support qos (most routers do), you can set which protocol/application has higher/lower priority. if not, you can use traffic shaping software like cfosspeed.

some router will even let you specify minimum bandwidth for certain protocol/application, which will guarantee you enough bit rate.

Actually you can use QoS via some Linux/Unix Queuing Discipline, I always suggest use of PF in any BSD. However if you like Linux then Shorewall could help, for Shorewall traffic shaping we use three algorithms: HTB (Hierarchical Token Bucket), HFSC (Hierarchical Fair Service Curves) and SFQ (Stochastic Fairness Queuing).

If you'd want to try Shorewall, check this page:

So what is meant by QOS. If you are talking about the problem, frequesnt disconnections, line issues and unsink events, then of course it is specific to ADSL and they are always solvable if the provider is good. I got my line conditioned and for the last one year, I am getting top quality of service.

If it is something similar to what is answered by other members, then it seems not to be specific to ADSL.
