It is a moot point unless there are problems which result with the Router's LAN being clamped down to very slow speeds, which some of us have experienced when using the Modem-Router-Ooma configuration. Than the Ooma Setup QoS settings of Zero, doesn't work. Some other settings have to be entered.joe123 wrote: The QoS on Ooma is for data traffic going from the Interner Port to the Home Port. With Modem-Router-Ooma, the Ooma Home Port is not used (no ethernet cable) and thus QoS is a moot point.
Thanks for clarifying that, that was my wrong understanding.
It's like a water system that has its valves shut off (to Home Port Network). With changes in the water pressure, and other valves being turn on and off, sometimes chatter and noise can be heard, and the pipes vibrate uncontrollably. But if you open the valves slightly or add an air over water accumulator of some kind to the pressure side of the water pipes, the chatter and noise goes away and the water system operates normally.
I'm not saying that the first chose shouldn't be Ooma's Suggestion to set QoS settings to Zero for the Modem-Router-Ooma connection> I'm just saying if there are problems, like very slow Router LAN speeds, that other things can be done that will help resolve the probems.
