Hi,

I've a ASUS AC88U running Merlin 386.2_beta3.

I've installed FlexQoS (as I believe CakeQoS is not available for my model). Now I've set up a "Gaming" rule as detailed in the GithUB Wiki. However, how do I set this up for multiple gaming devices? I.e: PC 2, Xbox, PS4 and PS5?

Each of these have a static IP (set under LAN > DHCP Server) as 192.168.1.xx but how do i add this to the iptables rules under the well known gaming rule do i do it in the format of using ";" such as IP;IP;IP?


Thanks.

You have to use CIDR notation, but first you have to have all your desired IPs within the range covered by the CIDR block.

I'm a bit of a noob - how does CIDR work exactly? They all have static IPs and end in .60, .63 and .64 via DHCP Server tab

CIDR Calculator for IPv4 addresses (networkcalculator.ca)

Pick the /xx value which will be enough to encompass all your devices. You may need to move them there first though, as @dave14305 indicates above.

So, for example, if you create a CIDR of 192.168.1.0/30, you can have two devices represented by it; 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2.
