    Tweaking Qos on la Fonera plus 

    La Fonera plus has a decent qos on board. Changing it is possible through the user-zone , moving this slide to the bandwidth we want to share.


    It’s possible to shrink it to minimum 512Kbs which can be acceptable for most dsl users.

    But , if you live in a crowded area , with many foneros connected to your hot spot , and your dsl provider give you a monthly amount of traffic , this could be a problem.

    Solution ? To open la fonera plus for a better custom qos.

    The file you need to edit is /etc/config/qos . For your convenience , I zipped a sample file to download.

    Open it and change this part :

    # QoS configuration for OpenWrt
    config interface hotspot
    option classgroup	"Default"
    option enabled		0
    option upload    	512
    option download		512
    option device		tun0
    config interface wan
    option classgroup  "Default"
    option enabled      0
    option overhead 	1
    option upload       128
    option download     1024

    Open it with your favourite editor and assign the bandwidth amount desired. Remember , tun0 hotspot is the FON_AP zone , wan is the lan gateway to the internet.Upload the new qos file to la fonera plus .

    This should be enough to shape as per your desire the bandwidth to share , but unfortunately , our freefonera hack seems to lack some init scripts.

    To make things work you have to go to /etc/rc1.d and create a symlink to rcd script S50qos.

    To do this type

    ln -sf /etc/rc.d/S50qos S50qos

    Reboot la fonera plus and you are now a proud member of Net Neutrality oppositor . You can shape , ban , slow any packet you want.

    I gave to pubblic wlan 100 kbs , enough to surf the web and even to make a skype call. Watching video or listening to radio streaming could be a problem , but I think a fonero should be responsible and do not saturate other’s bandwidth.
