Hello there!

I recently acquired the Huawei HG630b modem from Telecom as included by being with them in a 12 month contract, however I'm a bit stumped as to how to configure the QoS settings on the modem...

Basically I would like any input from the LAN1 port to take priority over any other traffic through the modem but when I enable the QoS setting no traffic goes through the computer plugged in from the LAN1 port.

Could someone please advise how I could configure the modem to express my desires as above?

Cheers!

I have basically the same problem - What is the best way to set up QoS on a Lan Port (for VoIP with a world exchange provisioned Spa112)? First time dealing with QoS, so not really sure what I am doing.

Me too. Would really like a settings example for using my ATA.

Simplest approach is to assign DSCP tags to a high priority queue. My default the ATA will use 0xb8 (46) for the RTP traffic.

Thanks, but not sure I know how to use the HG630b web interface to achieve this!! Was hoping someone might have a worked example?

I've given up trying to set up QOS on this router and am now getting really good results by simply giving my Linksys ATA a fixed IP of 192.168.1.1 and placing this in my HG630b's DMZ. Have made no other configuration changes to the HG630b. My ISP account is with Spark (100Mbps Naked Fibre) and my phone account is with 2Talk. Prior to using DMZ I was getting unreliable calls and occasional voice dropouts).

Further to my earlier comment re using SPA3102 ATA in the HG630's DMZ. I also had to use sip port 50600 instead of 5060 and turned off SIP ALG in the HG630b.  Now absolutely perfect and reliably receive 2Talk wake up calls with audio!!  Previously these either didn't reach me at all or lacked audio.

You should never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never ever place an ATA on a DMZ or have a port forward on your SIP ports. If you can explain in one sentence why this is needed (and one way audio or blocked inbound calls is not an answer) then I'll grant you an exception to this rule.

When your ATA is compromised (and it's a case of when, not if) I guarantee you then be asking here for advice on how to fix the issue!

Ok - fair enough!! DMZ or port forwarding are certainly not my personal preferences either.  Problem is the HG 630b is one very tough customer. 

Have finally found a compromise that still involves turning off the broken SIP ALG, using port 50600 for SIP and setting up a port trigger instead as follows.  I appreciate that this also carries some risk but at least it works perfectly for every call!!!

The first thing to do on any router that you want to use VoIP on is to disable the SIP ALG. It will break VoIP on the vast majority of routers.
