Question about Computers & Internet
I didn't necessarily need to enable QoS when I was on 3 meg, but now that I've downgraded back to 1.5 once again due to financial strain (and since I'm not at home that much anymore), it's critical that I find a way to properly enable QoS. Why? My sister is here on the weekends, and so am I. An example of the connection stress I have to go through is when she's streaming a video from Stage6 or Veoh, I have to undergo lag whether I'm viewing a web page or watching a Youtube video. Sometimes, the lag is ridiculous...and for those who think my DSL is at fault, check out the stats:
ADSL Line State: Up
ADSL Startup Attempts: 1
ADSL Modulation: ADSL2+
ADSL Data Path: Interleave
Datapump Version: DSP 126.96.36.199, HAL 188.8.131.52
SNR Margin: 19.00 26.00 dB
Line Attenuation: 58.50 39.00 dB
Output Power: 20.97 11.83 dB
Errored Seconds: 0 0
Loss of Signal: 0 0
Loss of Frame: 0 0
CRC Errors: 0 0
Data Rate: 1493 249
(On a fast path profile too, mind you; it is not interleaved according to the 11 ms 2nd hop on a tracert)
Anyway, back on QoS, if I could just find a way to limit the bandwidth to my sisters computer or to make my connection the higher priority of the two, I would be fine with just that, because sometimes, I can't even break past 30 kb/sec with her hogging the connection. The question is, how do I go about doing it?
Anyway...I'm really at a loss here, and I'm assuming this is the screen where I can add QoS profiles. Upon clicking add (or edit), I am transferred to this screen..
This is how I've attempted to setup a QoS profile to prioritize my connection (the inside, network IP address typed above). I'm not sure if it will work or not and I will have no idea until my sister comes over here this weekend. The point is, I just want to be ready and not have to reconfigure and reboot my modem constantly to set up QoS properly.
If anyone, and I mean ANYONE could offer me some insight on properly configuring my router to properly prioritize my connection over hers (even if it's just port 80; I don't care), I would much appreciate it.
I apologize for the rather...lengthy post.
