      No QoS on Sky router. For those wondering what 'QoS' is: Quality of service - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      It's very important!

      I assume this is why online gaming via Sky is terrible?

      There are many who would disagree with you, unless you are on Connect that is.

      There are very few ISPs who give out routers which are capable of full QoS, most routers are simply set to UBR by default.

      I don't know why you keep going on about Sky if you are not a Sky user. There are millions of us who are quite happy with what they supply.

      What's that got to do with anything? We're talking about the 'priority' of your download/upload. It causes high pings, and I notice that on the official forums alot of people complain about high pings. This is a likely cause.

      Been with BT and Tiscali - both with QoS functionality

      Edit: Before you reply. QoS is really important for gaming

      Gaming on Sky is more than possible, have a read of this....

      In your opinion. My gaming on Sky is perfectly acceptable.

      That's strange... I just can't picture you being a gamer. I picture you sitting on this forum all day (apologies if I'm wrong)

      Back to the QoS thing....

      No QoS means you get 'queued' packets and queued packets = delay and delay = high ping. Sorry for looking at it logically

      I will leave the forum now.

      No need to I just banned you, I have better things to do then listen to someone moan about something that is just not true, or try to insult people on the internet. Go and play your games elsewhere.

      I don't mind people having a moan, but spreading misinformation is just wrong. Being insulting is zero tolerence as far as I am concerned.
