It does something; maybe it runs Google DNS on its own because in the past when router based Adblock would kill a website, my sister would always use Chrome to get around the issue.

Re: Default QoS Rules Contest **Complete**

Leaving it to my ISP seems to break ACC at times (and I use a big ISP in the US; Comcast). It's almost as if pings to Comcast IP are exempt from speed cap because the ping remains low even when the line gets saturated. That was my case as well (different ISP), ping remaining low even when the line ...

Re: QOSMON v2.3 Released to repo (ACC)

Just wanted to add my 2 cents. Been using the 1/22 beta and ACC is significantly much more stable compared to 1.10. Fair link limit doesn't drop much compared to before. As for using alternative ping targets; I've always had to do this because my ISPs IP address (default IP) sometimes seems to be ex...

Re: Default QoS Rules Contest **Complete**

Also what about setting the default ACC ping to Google DNS? I'm having good result so far https://i.imgur.com/2H7gRhb.png I've always set the ping destination to either Google DNS, Quad9, or OpenDNS. Leaving it to my ISP seems to break ACC at times (and I use a big ISP in the US; Comcast). It's alm...

Those two ports are https and http; deprioritizing them will cause your web browsing to be slow.

I think QOS still functions ok without it

This is good to know for those of us who never use graphs.

Re: New DNS Service: Quad9

It looks to be pretty poor performing for me. They must not have a server near you or their anycast isn't working right. They claim they have 70 locations online and will have over 160 in 2018. I like that it's run by a non-profit and that they won't sell your browsing data to marketers. I switched...

Re: Default QoS Rules Contest

I upgraded to 1.10.0 and did further testing. What happens if you don't do a BufferBloat rule and simply leave no rules? In general it works fine since Gargoyle equally splits bandwidth, but if you maximize upload on the SAME device (say you're sending a big file or doing a phone/photos back up), th...

Re: Default QoS Rules Contest

Some interesting ideas but nothing for the upload rules? The small packet ideas seem to me to be most appropriately handled on the upload side since that is where these are. My sense is that people who are having problems with "bufferbloat" metrics or slow web page loads under heavy load ...

Re: Default QoS Rules Contest

I do have an additional QoS rule option for those that care about improving bufferbloat (lag that occurs when your bandwidth is saturated). When tested on DSLReports' speed test, this gets you an A/A+. https://www.dslreports.com/speedtest https://www.bufferbloat.net/projects/bloat/wiki/What_can_I_do...
