I have 1 gig down but only 100up(which I just recently got for a lot more money since QoS isn't great). I host game servers and other things and people in my house can at times be uploading to things like dropbox/google drive and other stuff for work. The QoS was to basically make sure things like game servers & voice calls/video conferencing don't get weird when people forget to throttle things(which frankly is often). I don't see my upload improving much in the future either since I'm on the top package at this point and it's cable modem packages. Literally fiber a couple 100 feet away with symetrical gig for a lot cheaper but nooo they won't run it down the street. So frustrating..How fast is your Internet? I stopped using QoS when mine went over 512Mbps as it's just not helpful when your Internet connection can handle all of the traffic without bogging down.
This article is centered on VoIP but the principles apply:
QoS, short for Quality of Service, is a feature that make real-time communication, such as voice and video calls, much better via Wi-Fi. Check it out!dongknows.com
"QoS is generally not necessary when you have a high-speed broadband connection that has enough bandwidth for all of your applications at once."
Do you not have enough bandwidth for all your typical simultaneous usage?
Guess I should also say the thing that frustrates me is I'm assuming this is a fairly simple fix as they are taking their base code and applying it to different routers which this router has a different chipset so perhaps something is handled slightly differently but I can't seem to get them to understand this(ASUS) and they keep wanting to say it's a hardware problem. Honestly, I've run for months now without it on but just sometimes I will get latency spikes and such when uploads occur. It doesn't last very long and with the upgraded package has become increasingly transparent but is still kind of annoying at times given how much power this router has and that it cost over $400 when I bought it. I would expect them to listen to at least try to replicate it in their lab or something. It takes very little time to replicate this bug and it's pretty easy to replicate.
