My private LAN is connected to the Internet (cable modem service) by means
of the Linksys Cable/DSL router (BEFSR41). I have a Linux machine as well
as a Windows 2K Adv Server on my LAN. Everytime when I use my Windows 2K
Adv Server to place an Internet phone call through either Net2Phone or
DialPad service while downloading huge files (MP3s), the party I called as
well as me experience some sort of our voices have broken up into pieces
and it's pretty annoyance. I was thinking perhaps to replace my Linksys
router with a self-built Quality of Service (QoS) capable Linux router +
Firewall + NAT on a rather old i386/20 computer. I started to look through
the Linux documentation archive on QoS to no avail.
If you know of such a QoS for Linux, I certainly will appreciate if you
could shed some light to help. TIA.
