I have an AVAYA phone hooked up to a Linksys router......static is on the line for outbound calls....no VPN/Internet connection or packet loss issues.......could it be the filter?


No the sound is computerised into a data stream, the problem is probably the Internet routing and or the QOS (Quality of Service) settings on the router.

Applying QoS to WNDR3300


You may stop what you are doing right now. Nothing you do will work regarding QOS and your Avaya IP phone?

Is this a hardware VPN, or a VPN remote phone? (vpn client on the phone)

Depending on what system you are connected to, an IP Office or a communication manager, there might be settings to do, but none of them are qos.

QOS is inserted on the LAN, once the packets leave the LAN and hit the open internet, there is no QOS.

You might be able to change the compression algorithm the phone is using, which might help.

Setting Up QoS (Quality of Service) Settings on the WRT54G


What is QoS? QoS is a popular feature that ?guarantees? better service to selected traffic on a network. The goal in configuring QoS is to give priority and attention to certain devices or services so that they can use the maximum available throughput and speed available on a certain network when it is needed. Accessing the Router?s Setup Page 1. Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape. 2. When the browser window opens, go to the Address bar and type in the router's IP Address and click on the Go button (192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of Linksys Routers). 3. A window will appear prompting for a ?User Name? and a ?Password?. Leave the ?User Name? field blank, and type in the router's password and click on the OK button to login (admin is the default password). 4. The router's web-based ?Setup? utility should then load. Enabling and Configuring QoS 1. Once in the Router?s Setup page, click on the Applications and Gaming tab. 2. Next, click o n the QoS sub-tab. 3. Select the Enable option to turn on QoS features. NOTE: If you do not see the QoS sub-tab, you must upgrade your router?s firmware to the latest version. See Answer ID 1508 for more information. The WRT54G offers three (3) different types of Quality of Service (QoS) options: MAC Address-based, Application-based, and Port-based. Choose the appropriate type for your needs. · MAC Address-based QoS: In the Device Priority section, you can specify the hardware MAC address of the computer or device that you wish to give priority to. You can assign a Low or High priority for up to two (2) specific MAC addresses found on your local network. · Port-based QoS: In the Ethernet Port Priority section, you can control bandwidth according to which of the physical LAN ports your computer or device is plugged into. You can assign a Low or High priority to computers or devices connected to any of the router?s LAN ports (1 through 4). NOTE: You can also Enable or Disable ?Flow Control? for each LAN port, which is a technique that controls the speed at which data is received. If Flow Control is enabled for a certain port, then a receiving device is not overwhelmed with data as it is coming in. You can even control the flow further by specifying the Incoming Rate Limit to a certain speed. · Application-based QoS: In the Application Priority section, you can control bandwidth with respect to a specific application being used on the network. You can assign a Low or High priority to a particular application or service. There are several pre-configured Web services that use well-known ports, like FTP and HTTP, which you can use. You can also customize up to three different applications by entering an Application Name and the Specific Port # that the software application uses. If you are unsure of the port number that is used for a particular application, contact the software manufacturer for more information. 4. When you have finished configuring QoS settings, click on Save Settings button to save your changes.
