Traffic Prioritization

Recommended Posts

I understand the DumaOS Classified games, but what is "Work at Home"? When I click on the ? it comes up with a blank box.  And also, when I add something, why does it not ask when what priority I want to assign to it? Or is that when it asks what type it is? Why doesn't it just ask what priority I want ( High, Med, Low )?? Seems to me the configuration here is a bit too simplistic. While asking questions, why does it show the "tip" every single time I enter a main menu category? Is there any way to turn it off?

So that's things like Zoom, Skype etc. The type is basically wireless QoS. I get what you mean about priority but it either has priority or it doesn't really. In most cases you're only adding a couple of devices to Traffic Prioritization so there isn't a need for most things to be prioritized. Is it trying to start the tour? Click the X top right of the box and it should stop appearing - if you have bookmarked the interface you may have bookmarked the tour URL.

It's a tradeoff really.

 

Adding high, medium and low is not so simple as it requires at least 3 sending queues, one for each category. And since DumaOS attempts to QoS in both directions you would also need them on the LAN side.

 

Adding more queues simply degrades hardware performance as it requires stronger CPU's.

 

In this way, DumaOS basicly has 2 queues in each direction, what you add in traffic prio is high, rest is low.

 

These routers are meant for gamers, that have a PC and console and a few more devices. They are not meant for complex environments with loads of clients and a lot of services.

RIGHT, I get it now, and yes, that's fine.

I am still a little confused about the overall function here. Why does it mention Wireless Type? And why is there a tick box for WAN? I mean I just assumed this would be traffic to and from the WAN, but it seems that it is more than that.

Everywhere I go in the router it shows me the help tip and they just won't go away! For example...

The wireless type refers to Wireless QoS - if the device is wired choose normal, if it's wireless pick the relevant option. Apply to WAN adds priority tags to packets that some ISPs take note of and it can improve performance.

Are you clearing your browser cache/cookies regularly?

I see. OK. Does the pre-configured gaming entry use the tags? If so then I can investigate my ISP.

Yes. Cookies are cleared constantly. This is not manual, it is automatic, so can not be stopped.

If I can make a suggestion here, please just add one tick box somewhere to stop all messages! It kinda gets annoying after a while. Lol.

Good question, as far as I am aware Classified Games doesn't use that by default - Apply to WAN is quite new. That will be determined by the browser so surely it can be disabled? Thanks for the suggestion!

Yes, but I am not going to disable cookie deletion just for the router.
