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.

The Handset Configuration Manager is an OTA Configuration Solution in Telecom Consultancy, for all types of Mobile, enabling Mobile Device Configuration settings to be sent automatically at the right time this ensures that customers have access to Data Services immediately, always, no matter why or when they change Handset.

Ensuring End-to-End QoS

Using the Reach server Subscriber Capability Management rules, Handset Configuration settings can be sent automatically based on the history of the Handset observed on the network. e.g. only when the Handset is used for the first time. The Reach Server checks to ensure all corresponding Network Services based on the capabilities of the used Handset are also activated.

How does one configure vlan based Quality of Service on Paradyne SDSL Micro dslam


It doesn not appear that the Paradyne SDSL Micro supports QoS (Layer 3):

However, it appears that it can be configured for CoS (Layer 4), even though the device doesnt support CoS itself it can pass that on in the packet header. This also makes sense considering that most DSLAMs hand off straight to an ISP that will use FIFO to deliver the packets to the internet.

he audio works but the quality is poor.
trnsp.gif Answer Try disabling the Quality of Service (QoS) Packet scheduler in your Network Connection properties. QoS reserves 20% of your bandwidth and disabling this setting may improve audio quality.
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Click Network and Internet Connection, and then click Network Connections.
  3. Right-click the network or Internet connection that is currently enabled, and then click Properties.
  4. Clear the QoS Packet Scheduler check box.

I want to setup a wireless network with 3 deskops and atleast 2 laptot


Linksys has a slim Web server built into their routers and a nice little Web based configuration management interface. You can configure your router to pass or filter IP multicast. Most of the Linksys routers have a filter configuration page where you simply check to filter/pass multicast traffic. As for the VoIP/Teleplhony trafic, you should select one of the routers that allows Quality of Service (QoS) - only some routers support this. The QoS router may recognize the voice traffic automatically but at most you would have to specify the applicaation/ports to give priority to. Again, all is done easily via the Web based management utiility - no CLI needed.
