I live in the middle of nowhere. Luckily was eventually able to get DSL from Frontier to replace the data capped satellite internet. Have unlimited data usage and usable ping now for occasional online multiplayer. Here's the max speed as listed by the modem/router combo for reference.


 Mid day slows to about 70KB/s. Not fast, but enough to stream videos at 360p, do voice chat, and play games on.


Now the router does surprisingly have QoS settings. My goal would be to reserve 20-40KB/s to my gaming rig during the day so that it has breathing room to send/receive a multiplayer signal with reasonable ping. Reasonable being between 40 and 300 for it. However normally video watching and other downloading throughout the day chokes out the bandwidth and delays the multiplayer signals being sent, making ping skyrocket anywhere between 600 and 4000 (no joke). 


With all that. This is what the QoS settings look like. 




Main menu^


Under the "Add Queue" link^


Under "view/Add Filter Rules" ^


Under "New Filter" with the last one^


I've never run into QoS settings this detailed before. The ones I've all used have been on consumer or enthusiast routers, and were way more simplified. 

Networking is my week point if you cant tell. Large initial learning curve. If anymore could help walk me through how I'd set this up and explain some of the terminology it'd be much appreciated. This is both a challenge and learning experience I'd like to conqueror.


EDIT:Fixed MB/KB type-o

99% of the time, I edit for type-o's and grammar. I'll note it if that's not the case. 

I write near essays for most my responses, and then try to condense as best I can to the introduction of one. Less is more. Let me know if I post to much. 

I do a lot of spacing for readability. Let me know if that makes my posts seem to big.
