That depends on what you need,because in my opion the most usefull settings are the QoS settings,which you can set to give each protacol that you use a prority setting,that way no one protacol hogs all the bandwidth.
But I quess it`s a matter of choice really as most people just want to have a port 80 [WAN] port at max.
But one tip is to turn off the QoS section in your windows internet settings box,as those settiings overide any router settings.
And in your adapter card settings [advanced] the large send offload choice [if there] should be disabled no matter what router or modem/router you use,as this is will slow down all modern internet connections if enabled.
Do you have any settings recommendations to get the best out of the 2750n Ironman? Cheers
Nothing special really.
I have two wireless networks active (both hidden) one for my devices and a guest one with isolate LAN so they can't see my devices.
I have VPN link to work, which is how I am replying to you now.
Did mess around with bandwidth limiting of guest network, it works, but not using now as at 80Mbs guest wireless is hardly going to be a bandwidth hog.
I use the Wake on LAN bit to wake my PC's/Servers at home when I need access from work.
I have multiple port forwarding to some of my internal LAN devices so I can access externally.
I have enabled remote management so I can fiddle from work.
All just works 24/7.
Just another quick one gents...
I needed to turn on uPNP for my Xbox and PS3 for it to handle the NAT types in certain games as open..
Now... I thought uPNP was just a option to turn it ON or OFF! Why does it ask for download speed and upload speed?
How do I know how much to add here?
Thanks in advance for your help gents..
This is not an easy one to answer,because it depends on what uPNP [plug and play] devices you are using and what level of bandwidth you wish to allocate to them,the defaults might look low but as PNP is only passing port info mostly [so you don`t have to do it manually by port forwarding],in my opion the defaults should be fine.
But you can double them if you have a lot of uPNP devices that use your network or link to the internet.
Some game servers use PNP [ for example to make it easier to join them without having to forward lots of port info].
And also if you for example had a web drive [USB] that could be a PNP device that maps through the uPNP router section to connect to your local network etc.
To sum up if your devices work with no problems,just use the defaults.
BTW,I notice that you have "Auto Logout" on,it logs you out of the router pages after 5 minutes,so if you are changing settings ,setting it to "Off" every time your log into the router config pages is recommended.
Try bandwidth limits page.
You can add device IPs to the list and limit the Tx [upload] and Rx [download] allotted to that device on your network.
You only need the middile section for policing certain IPs,the other setting govern global settings.
Morning Ironman... Once again thank you for your help.
Do this method limit the upload and download ammount per session or will it limit the upload and download speed for the device ?
I would like my ps3 to have no more than say 5mb download speed and 0.2mb upload speed so my connection is not acceptable enough to be selected as game host.
Sorry Ironman... ignore that last question.
Your advice has worked a treat..!
Thanks again for your valued input.
