QoS oops

:oops: I had to go and do one more thing to break things.

In my last message, I mentioned that perhaps I should add the 'new' Linux server as 'express'. Make sure its DNS requests take a bit more priority....

So I added its IP....don't know if it was because the IP part was "" or just the number of entries that I have has made the 'svqos_ips' nvram variable string so long that it is having problems. But, it stored the 'x.x.x.254/32' as 'x.x.x.254/3'....suddenly everything was going as express. Huh? :o

I guess it was a matter of time....

....for something else to break in my apartment.

This time it is the washing machine. Problem, I need to move a shelf out of the kitchen, if they have to replace it. A shelf full of dry and canned goods. Plus a stack of bottled water.

RIM BlackBerry Swivel 7100t Holster



RIM BlackBerry 7100t Swivel Holster

I ordered one of these back in November from, they charged my card immediately....but I still don't have it...and they keep moving the date .... >:XX

I was thinking of ordering their Blackberry High Capacity Battery, but since they haven't fulfilled my first order with them and did the annoying charge first, no ship thing on me....I'm not sure I'd ever want to do business with them ever again.

Fool me once, shame on you....Fool me twice, shame on me....

DSLReports Line Monitoring


Well, made another tweak to my router last night....contrary to recommendations, I set my UP/DOWN rates for QoS to higher values.

DSLReports Line Monitor - New Jersey

DSLReports Line Monitor - California

DSLReports Line Monitor - San Francisco

No noticeable impact on my latency....interesting spikes/dips though.

Linksys: HGA7T - High Gain Antenna Kit for TNC Connectors


Since I switched to using the WRT54GS with Sveasoft...instead of the BEFSR81 + Netgear ME102...I've been having trouble with my WiFi connection.

Things drop to 1Mbps randomly..other times it stops completely. I have AP watchdog set, but it is kind of a strange kluge. At least I don't use channel 11, otherwise it would break the law every time the watchdog kicked in. Of course, cranking the power or changing antennas also deviates from the rules.

But, since I found out that the WRT54GS has TNC connectors and sells an antenna kit....I became torn on whether I should upgrade the antennas or go back to a standalone AP.

Since I went to all the trouble of upgrading my laptop to 802.11g, going back to the old ME102 isn't that interesting. And, compared to buying a pair of new D-Link DWL-7100AP...trying antennas seems a cheaper thing to try. So, that's what I just ordered.

Though the reason I've been looking at the DWL-7100AP is that it purports to do WDS bridging over 802.11a. Which could help ensure my neighbors don't interfere with the WiFi bridge that my home media devices (ReplayTVs, Momitsu V880N...and perhaps someday the HTPC HD-DVR I'm thinking of building) are on.

Of course, the other alternative is to let my laptops access the 802.11g WiFi bridge that I currently use. :lalala:

ReplayTV and OTA HD vs SA8000HD

:oops: I subjected some random forum to a rambling thought....

The gist is that for some reason Friday programming on my SA8000HD DVR tends to experience a lot of breakup and stuttering....and last Friday, watching Star Trek: Enterprise this way was intolerable.

So, I resorted to watching it whole, clean and intact via my ReplayTV from the downconverted OTA HDTV. Sure I lose some of the detail, and it is just the analog stereo output. But, at least I could watch it and not miss important bits of dialog here and there.

WRT54GS w/Sveasoft and QoS == better latency 2

While, now my line monitoring for ping times is kind of still tracks other events...

Namely this morning's network outage: - Line Status

Guess I need to tweak the router to reboot itself now and then....

1 ... 118 119 120 121 123 125 126 127 128 ... 141

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
