Which MAC for Router Based QOS??

Post by Stuntman » Wed Oct 20, 2010 3:14 pm

I currently have my modem, then router (running Tomato firmware) and then my Ooma Hub... I need to keep my system in this order.. I live with a not very fast DSL Internet connection so I want to be able to utilize the QOS of my router..

Question is:

1) Which of the Ooma's MAC addresses do I configure for the QOS priority in my router? The MAC of the 'Modem' side, I'd guess.. not the Home side? I assume this as the Modem side is the side I connect to my LAN.. Is this correct?

2) If I utilize the router for QOS, should I completely DISABLE the QOS in the Ooma Hub by setting those to Zero?

1. Modem port mac address.

2. Since you're not using the HOME port of the Telo (or hub), nothing need to be done to the QOS settings, you are only using your Tomato's QOS.
