I want to configure the ADSL router which connects 10+ machines to the internet. I want to give maximum priority to browsing (ports 80,443) and set low priority for bittorrent etc.(port 42180)
I have been experimenting with settings , but with no luck. There are three settings which confuse me, along with my understanding.
- 802.1 Priority - Related to LAN level, possible values 0-7 , higher numbers means higher priority.
- 'Mark traffic priority' - clueless about this.
- IPP/DS - IP Precedence - possible values 0-7 ; 6 & 7 are reserved, so set 5 for highest priority. Or when using DSCP - set 46 for highest priority.
Please help me in getting this done...
Similer question for another model of router here , but with less number of confusing options :) How to configure QoS on home router
Update: from discussion on another thread, QoS can control only upstream traffic (from router to the internet) , while this may in turn affect downstream traffic rate, there is no direct control over data coming into the router.
