Feature Request: QoS
Hi There, I would like to see two new features added to the app for managing my wifi network. The first is just device usage so when I go in and see my devices listed can you show and track how much data each device is utilizing and report back that on the app?
Second is there any plan for adding device prioritization where I could give a certain device higher speeds for a designated amount of time? So say give the XBOX top priority for the next hour or see a device and even turn down the bandwidth it might be using?
Two features that would greatly enhance an already awesome WiFi solution!
Would love to see some type of hard device prioritizing. I’ve enabled SQM, only issue is I work from home and have kids using zoom to do remote school too. For work I have a Cisco video device and a voip phone. I would like to ensure these devices always have priority during the day, over streaming or any other thing.
Not seeing SQM on the eero 6 but I saw some posts saying it is coming and I’ve heard some great things about it. Would still love to see true QoS controls available for the more advanced users. I have found your routers to be much more reliable than anything else on the market and am excited as the features catch up.
I can’t find smart queue management in eero app under the labs section. Was it removed ?
any replacement or recommendations for a QOS feature in eero app?
have An eero 6 mesh , 1+2 units.
I have the latest Eero 6 and invested in a total of 3 extenders and literally one device sending upstream/upload data can bring down the entire network. I love them overall but the lack of this option is a blocker to continue using it.
This Smart Queue Management feature is critical for me to keep these devices or I will shelve them and look at another solution like Netgear Nighthawk.
I need SQM or QoS (anything at this point). This is a deal-breaker for me. Eero 6 3-pack and the high ping in games is killing me.
Is there a timeline on when or if this will become available on the eero 6 devices?
Can we get a QoS feature to give specific devices top priority? The "Optimize for Conferencing and Gaming" works most of the time.
When I'm working and my kids are gaming or streaming, my work has to come first. Eero seems to give the streaming or games priority over downloading or uploading reports, over working on web-based applications, and even over video conferences with screen sharing. I believe this could be fixed by setting my work computer as top priority, and letting Eero figure out the rest.
I just purchased Eero 6 devices. 2 RRouters and 2 extenders for my home network. A big part of this decision was based on the Blog post and help files on the EERO website showing QoS support. Now that I have the system installed, and set up. There is no QoS or SQM options or menus anywhere. I am quite disappointed and about to return these devices. EERO 6 has some great features but what a friggin letdown to have been misled like this. But I should have expected it from an Amazon company I guess.
I am with imurphy. I have 2 Eero Pro 6 routers and I am NOT happy to learn there is no QoS or SQM presently and that it was removed. What the hell is going on guys?
This feature really needs to go into planned. eero owns the market for mesh IMO, but this feature is the ONLY keeping me from purchasing them for my clients. Please make this happen!
Yeah, time to get cracking on QOS you've sat on it for too long. My phone cuts out when my kids stream or game because I can't prioritize the phone. And your feature favouring all of those at once doesn't help me at all. It's almost as if you're avoiding the request.and offering half baked solutions. Not happy!
Please fix SQM. Significantly more upload buferbloat when it is enabled!
Yes! The SQM feature is alright, but I would really like to ability to simply prioritize a single device on a home network.
In our office setting, the ability to limit bandwidth on the GUEST network is critical. Our guests watching YouTube should not have equal priority with our staff using mission-critical high-bandwidth low-latency applications.
Quality of Service (QoS) in networking refers to the performance level of a service or application. More specifically, it describes the ability of a network to provide better service to certain traffic types, and to accommodate various network service requirements, particularly for those services that require high bandwidth and high priority, such as voice over IP (VoIP) and streaming media.
In the context of a router, QoS settings can be adjusted to prioritize certain types of traffic over others. This can be particularly useful in a busy network where bandwidth is a scarce resource. For instance, you may want to prioritize VoIP traffic to ensure your phone calls over the internet aren't affected by other less important traffic, like file downloads or updates.
QoS can control traffic in various ways, such as:
1. **Bandwidth Management:** Allocating a certain amount of the network's total bandwidth to certain types of traffic.
2. **Priority Queuing:** Prioritizing network traffic by type. Traffic is placed in different queues based on priority level, and higher-priority queues are emptied before lower-priority ones.
3. **Traffic Shaping:** Delaying some or all datagrams to bring them into compliance with a desired traffic profile. This is often done to limit network congestion and server crashes due to traffic surges.
4. **Congestion Management:** Managing traffic to prevent network congestion, often through the use of congestion avoidance techniques and policies.
Implementing QoS can be complex and requires careful planning and configuration. It's important to understand the needs of the network and the various traffic types it carries before adjusting QoS settings.
As others have said I Also notice the the speeds dramatically drop whenever you're using it, but why can't the user have the ability to prioritise their own usage and traffic like indeed QoS,my priorities are not the same as the next person's.
