Router's QoS ignored by access point router

    Router's QoS ignored by access point router


    Hi, I am sharing my internet connection with my roommates, but lately they have been using P2P to download stuff which uses almost all the internet speed available. I have set up QoS to limit their bandwidth in the main Asus wifi router which directly connects to the modem, it works great for a few days, but then it doesn't work anymore, I still get slow internet speed now. Since my flat has 2 wifi routers, one is the main and another one is set up with a different name but still connects to the main router via the ethernet cable a few metres away so that the wireless range is increased. Just for your information, the two routers are transmitting on different channel, if you think that might be the cause and they have different SSID.

    Could it be possible that the QoS only works in the main wifi router and doesn't affect the other wifi router which my roommates also have access to it?

    I have changed the default router password so I am sure that they have no access to the router's settings. Thanks!

    That is correct. As long as the router is running some form of QOS. It will always handle traffic. The access point is only an extension of the wireless. It does not bypass router/gateway security in any form.

    So, are you saying that the access point router does not ignore the QoS set in the main router? But, then why do I have this issue?

    Again. All an access point is an extension of your network, to allow wireless access in areas that may not be able to connect to from the main wifi router. Also used in place of routers with wifi capability (ie Wireless-n or Wireless-ac, if the router only has Wireless-g capabilities.).

    It in no way ignores QOS on the router.
