QoS settings for Xbox live using actiontec gt724wgr

February 5, 2013 2:27:43 PM

Hi, I have an actiontec gt724wgr modem/router/gateway and i'm confused how to set the QoS to get best wired connection for xbox Live. I don't have to port forward anything i don't think because when i click on the modem icon and go to properties then settings it lists xbox port 3074 udp as a service running. I can add addition rules and i can also forward ports on the device webpage but i don't know if anymore need to be opened or not since i always connect fine (but slow) and have an open nat. I also have dmz enabled for my xbox as well and all wireless turned off since no one in my home uses anything wireless. what I'm confuse on is when i go to advanced settings i have a page for qos upstream and qos down stream. on the upstream page i can check the box for enable qos then it show total available bandwith as 320Kbps and shows high priority bandwidth as 296 which is changeable. it has a place to enter source IP then destination IP and i can set a precedence level of 1-7 and both ask for port ranges being default at 0-65535. i then have to add rule and apply. On the qos downstream it is pretty much the same except i can't set a precedence level and the available bandwidth is 448 Kbps and high priority bandwidth is 385 kbps. I need to know what IP addresses to use for source and destination, what port ranges should i use on upstream, what to enter if anything at all on downstream since i can't set a precedence level, and what i should set the high priorty bandwidth to all so i can throttle down bandwidth to my computer while throttling up bandwidth to my Xbox 360. I've looked all over for setting for my specific networking device but the model apparently doesn't exist except for a useless pdp manual that tells me nothing i don't already know.
