QoS settings won't stick (Voxel), effectively no QoS available.

    I have been using Voxel's excellent firmware and I am grateful for this.

    The only problem I have (and I had the same issue with the stock firmware, regardless of version) is with QoS.

    The main issue is that when I choose a priority for a connected device, set it and save, when I click again, it is set back to what it was (usually to low). As such I cannot change the priority which renders the whole point of QoS null.

    Additionally, since after I installed Voxel's firmware, the router cannot do a speed test anymore. I click to start, and everything is greyd out.

    Any help (mainly for the former issue) would be great. The problem is so large that when my server (whom I want at lowest priority) downloads files (cloud backups/restores) my Smart TV (which I want at highests) pauses playback from BBC iPlayer and only resumes if I stop the server. This should not be happening.

    Thank you

    Does this happen with different browsers? Try IE11, FF or Opera.
    Try a factory reset on the router and setup from scratch. Still happen after this?

    A firmware for XR500 was released that fixed the speedtest last week, so I imagine one will be pushed to the R7800 as well. It also included a fix for disconnections from Qualcomm, so I imagine that will be pushed to the R7800 too as its the same chipset.
