I have a 26mbps connection.
I recently setup a Nighthawk r7000 router with tomato . loving it.
i am completely new to such advanced router and qos itself
what i wanted (for start) that when im constantly downloading something. I want to turn on my tv and start watching netflix. and If lets say netflix needs 10mbps , my download should reduce to 13mbps and continue.
as soon as im done with my tv. downlaod should go back up to 26mbps . i am a layman . but im guessing thats not too much to ask.
in tomato i setup my tv's mac address on a qos class which has 100% and 100% inbound..
and my pc's mac is on a qos class which has 5% and 100% inbound .
so yeah i dont mind download speeds getting low . as long as its all automatic while netflix is on.
its working . but not as effective as i would hoped.
whats happening is that netflix starts using 5mbps and my download reduces to 20-21. which is fine
but if my download is off. the netflix can go upto 10mbps and use the best quality.
most tv users will know that quality cannot be forced on netflix tv apps :( .
so what are the solutions for this ?
thank you for time
