Ping Latency Makes VoIP Useless

I guess we can't directly post images here... of my screen captures of the Preferences on this forum. My settings are all default and I am running 24796. The only thing I ever manipulate is the global UL limit when I need to use VoIP. Is that what you mean by enable BW management? Thanks.

The ip/hostname to report to tracker is invalid, doesn't actually hide you, and would likely be ignored by trackers anyway. And if it weren't ignored, it would greatly reduce your performance.

Setting an unlimited upload rate globally is likely part of your problem, set one close to, but not too close to, your line's rated upload speed.

I have been setting the Global UL to 20 kB/s when I need to use my VoIP and 0 "unlimited" when I don't. Just looking for a way to automate this. Maybe lowering the quality of my VoIP service will make it more tolerant of jitter. Vonage just gives you a good-better-best type of option. LAN QoS doesn't help as I mentioned. I'm not sure why you bring up the the ip/hostname to report to tracker?? Thanks.

Well, when downloading, setting unlimited is a bad idea. You end up choking off your connection's ability to acknowledge and request downloaded pieces.

Because it will likely cause you other problems down the road.
