Quality of Service (QoS) and Bandwidth Throttling
How to apply basic quality of service (QoS) and bandwidth throttling to your Sputnik-powered devices.
Access the Sputnik-powered device ("routers") list.
Even one user running a peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing program can ruin network performance for all of the customers on your Wi-Fi network.
- Quality of Service (QoS) management enables you to stop users running common P2P applications from abusing your bandwidth
- Bandwidth throttling enables you to cap the total amount of bandwidth used by your Sputnik-Powered device, useful if it is part of a larger network
Here is how SputnikNet currently applies QoS settings to common Internet protocols:
Premium (guaranteed 75% of available bandwidth)
ssh, subversion, dns, jabber, gif, jpeg, png, pop3, imap, smtp
Express (guranteed at least 15% of bandwidth)
skyptetoskype, http, ssl, flash, http-rtsp, httpaudio, httpvideo, html
Bulk (no guranteed bandwidth)
applejuice, ares, audiogalaxy, bittorrent, directconnect, edonkey, fasttrack, freenet, gnutella, kugoo, openft, napster, soulseek
Select the Sputnik-powered device you want to configure.
SputnikNet enables you to utilize these features on Sputnik-powered devices using Sputnik-powered DD-WRT firmware running Sputnik Agent version 126.96.36.199 or higher. To turn on QoS/Throttling for selected Sputnik-powered devices on your network, log into SputnikNet and select "Routers".
