 Subject:  VoIP Priority on "Mobile" system?
 Date:  Mon, 13 Mar 2006 13:55:42 -0500

I'm looking for a unique solution to an issue that most likely can't  
be easily solved with M0n0wall.. but I thought I'd post it anyway.

We are using m0n0wall in a mobile system that is moved around the  
country every day. At each place, we encounter a different type of  
internet connection. Sometimes it's a T1, other times cable, or DSL.

We have about 50 users on the LAN with laptops and several VoIP  
ATA's... just "Vonage-like" units that give us phone service over  

We are looking for a way to help keep our VoIP packets prioritized  
above our data packets.

When we try and use the traffic shaper, we are asked what our current  
upstream/downstream rates are. All that would be fine but we are not  
able to modify these settings on a daily basis.. it's too much to do.

We can put the VoIP on a different LAN (OPT) but I don't think that  
this will prioritize the traffic....

Anyone have any ideas?
