Re: just checking - 'best' router wrt1900acs ?

I recently installed the WRT1900ACv2 after having trouble with my WDR3600. Its a big upgrade. If your WDNR3800 was performing good before it died then the WRT1900AC will work very nicely for you. I would not hesitate to save the $.

Re: OpenVPN Install Errors on WDR3600 V1.5

For the record I was not trying to preserve settings. This was a clean flash. But I will say that the reason I was flashing is that this router just out of the blue started having reliability issues. I wish there was a way to check if the flash and RAM where all OK. So mysteries abound. Anyway I tho...

OpenVPN Install Errors on WDR3600 V1.5

I recently reloaded this router with Gargoyle v1.12.0 downloaded from the site. I then attempted to install OpenVPN. Flash on this router is tight but it said it would fit and afterwards apparently successful install claimed I had 64kB of flash remaining. However I see the following in my logread th...

Re: Turned on QoS and gasped!?!

I would not like to see a default that was higher than the router's actual throughput capability with QoS on. As we know that capability varies widely with router model. If someone wants to take a position that the lowest performance "supported" model is something higher I'm OK with that new number ...

Re: demanding teenagers... seeking speed

You did not mention your ISP speed.

What evidence is there that a new Router will change anything?

The router you have is pretty good.

Re: Optimizing QoS for speed

At the moment the tc divisor used is 256. When I increase this to 512 (for both up and down), lo and behold, the speed is almost identical as without QoS (just 1-2 mbit difference, which is OK). I made a test of this and cannot find any measurable difference in speed caused by changing the tc divis...

Re: Found a way to break QOS?

I can't, that's why I asked if 1.10 had a similar setting. 1.11 runs heavy and unstable on my aging device, especially with some additional services enabled (like adblocking), which I consider to be essential. Hmm. Sounds like you need a new device. You can find the overhead variable in your init.d...

Re: Found a way to break QOS?

You're a genius! I didnt know there was a "dsl mode" in this software? Any particular reason that it isn't exposed as a switch? Yes, yes I am A switch might be a good addition to the interface. It used to be that it was easy to automatically detect so it was not there in the beginning. Re...

Re: Found a way to break QOS?

You say that you have a DSL link but according to this Wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asymmetric_digital_subscriber_line DSL cannot achieve 30Mbit download. So that is a confusion point and setting your QoS download speed above 24Mbit may itself break QoS. Your QoS router needs to be the slowest...

Re: Found a way to break QOS?

Effective BW from ISP is 27mbps down, 1800mbps up This statements means that the upload bandwidth on the QoS page should be set to not more than 0.95*1800=1700kbps. You should start working with 1300kbps. This mistake alone will break your upload QoS. I agree with Daeron that setting your download ...
