Anyone familiar with Verizon Router GUI? How To Set Uplink Speed

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm trying to help my brother fix his upload speeds at his apartment the same way I did for mine. The issue is that the setting for "uplink speed" isn't so cut and dry as it was on my asus router.

He has Verizon as the ISP and they gave him one of those combo modem/router/wireless router. I'm looking through the settings and the only place I can see with QoS uplink is a choice to either Enable or disable QOS uplink, and under that you can choose default QoS or custom, and under custom you have to make a custom rule for each IP address and under those rules you can set "reserved uplink" and under that it says "max uplink 600kbs"

I want to try and make a rule that applies to EVERY upload and try and set the reserved uplink to 6000-8000 kbs like i did with my asus.

I know that I pay for more than .43 Kbps upload which speedtest tells me.

Anyone have experience with these Verizon modem/routers GUI.

In the spoiler is the way I solved this issue with My Asus Router and a different ISP. I am trying to do the same thing with this router because I think were dealing with the same issue. And as someone said, it is a simple router configuration. I don't know how to do this with his router. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

My Problem:

For some reason, Behind my router, even with QoS on, my speedtest.net results were perfect on download, but terrible on upload.

My Specs

ISP = Optimum Online
Router = Asus RT-N10+
Wired + Wireless

My ISP Advertised Speeds:
DL = 15mb/s
UL = 5mb/s

My Findings:

Test 1 : PC > Router > Modem:

DL = 18mb/s
UL = 0.63mb/s

Test 2 : PC > Modem:

DL = 18mb/s
UL = 3.5mb/s

Symptoms (Thanks for the Language Correction, still don't know if this word fits..)

I am receiving the correct speeds from my ISP when PC is hardwired to the modem.
When the router gets involved, my upload is almost non-existant.

The Steps I Took To Fix This Problem:
- I went into the router settings (192.168.1.1)
- Somewhere in the WAN or LAN settings, it gave you a space to manually enter your uplink speed in ms/s (Correct me if I'm wrong on the units)
- It was automatically put at like 1000, and I decided to increase that because it may increase how upload speed is handled.
- I put it to 3000, saw a jump in speed, put it to 5000, saw a jump in speed, and it bellied-out at 7000 where the speed seemed to be the best i can go.

Now even when my PC is connected to the router, to the modem, I am receiving my advertised speeds!

If this solves your issues, GREAT, if not, there are many other great ideas to try on overclock.net.
