This has been an issue ever since i got X4S be it stock firmware or Voxel's. You would think with the MAC address the setting would stick but it keeps changing from whatever priority i set. Any solutions?

@bartj12 Do you say that because the R7800 has a bad implementation of QoS, or do you think that QoS in general is not very beneficial?

I used it to limit my bandwidth and get my bufferbloat score up. But I'm not sure how good the 7800 QoS could be... the database has not been updated in over a year. If they've had any QoS changes in their firmware
they do not say and I could not imagine them getting the code right.. The attached devices page where one can set priority remains my most buggy and problematic page.

QoS in general is a good concept, especially if you are with many users. I've tested it on the R7800 multiple times and it was only slowing things down... And yes it was property configured.

I doubt it never slowed down

FWIW: I've only seen the same. I run my R7800 with it off.
