    Now that we are 384.9 what is that latest on the RT-AC68U being able to prioritize VoIP traffic according to the settings on the Adaptive QOS - QOS_EZQos.asp panel?

    I have used the custom setting and set VOIP and Instant messaging to the highest priority, followed by Video at 2nd.

    I have been checking the traffic statistics of a Cisco ATA in the Traffic Analyzer statistics panel and it seems to track the VoIP traffic under GENERAL as there is no other entry other than SIP and DNS there.

    Is that the way its normally done? I was expecting a VoIP category.

    Thank you for any advice.

    Interesting. Is there a setup cheat sheet out there?

    The defaults work great.

    Look at the first few posts in that thread. Only change what is recommended to start.

    Afterward, proceed slowly and test fully after rebooting the system(s) you're testing (including the router). And remember to wait at least 5 minutes so that everything is loaded and working properly too.

    So the word on the Merlin or Asus stock f/w is what? VoIP is not prioritized properly in the latest release of either with Adaptive QOS?
