I am wanting to setup some QoS to give VoIP traffic priority on my router. The router I use is a Dynalink RTA1320 which can apparently do Bridge QoS (Layer 2) and IP QoS (Layer 3).

These are a bit over my head. Can someone give me an idea on how to set this up? If they could also work for my iTalk traffic form the same device that would be cool, but not a necessity.

1. Start with factory reset Router & VFX device
2. Setup Dynalink RTA1320 to connect to the net
3. Configure your VFX device and make sure it receives it's IP address dynamically from the RTA1320. Check VFX is back online and working.
4. Log-in to RTA1320 and go to status page
5. Click on DCHP table and look for your VFX device listed there
6. Highlight and copy the MAC address & note down its assigned IP address
7. Go to Advanced page, click on "Local Network", click on "DCHP Server"
8. Click on reserved IP list button
9. A new window should open up, click on add button
10. Paste the MAC address you copied, and enter the IP address you noted down, apply then close
11. You may be requested to reboot the router at this point, but just carry onto next step
12. Still on the advance page, click "Quality Of service", click "IP QoS", then click add button
13. Traffic class name - VFX (or anything you want to call it)
      LAN ports - tick Ethernet only
      Protocol - TCP/UDP
      Source IP address - as noted down previously
      - Leave other fields blank until...
      Traffic priority - high
      IP type of service - "minimise delay"
14. Power off VFX device
15. Restart RTA1320
16. Once Dynalink is up & online, power up VFX device
17. Log-in to VFX device using noted down IP to confirm it has received this OK
18. Go to and make a phone call whilst speed testing to check voice quality.

Hope this helps

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Thanks heaps for that.

Just tried a few calls on both my VFX Line (711u) and my iTalk Lines (711a & 729a) all with excellent results and no packet loss. The ulaw was a LITTLE choppy at times, which may be due to the fact that it is not ideally suited to a WAN environment.

Results look good for now tho. I will continue testing 729 with my iTalk line and providing I am satisfied with the quality (Looking good at this stage) I will ask VFX to change be back. The change from a DSLAM to an ISAM seems to have made a favourable difference as well.

Huge thanks to coffeebaron as well as the team at WxC (Particularly Stephen and Phil) for helping me out with all of this.

We are also going to stay with family in the bay next week and I am going to take my device and see how it goes on a different DSL connection. Will be intersting to see the difference.
