    Default Bandwidth Control/QoS/PPPoE

    Hey guys,

    Is this question in the FAQ about QoS still valid?

    ===
    Does QoS work with PPPoE interfaces?
    No. PPPoE uses a special interface and is not supported by QoS.
    ===

    If it's the case, can we use Bandwidth control at all if our ISP is PPPoE ??

    Sure it does. Works great. Now PPPoE traditionally, very stereotypical here, uploads are sub 5 Mpbs. Some QoS algorithms are not as efficient at the slower speeds.

    I had DSL all during the COVID lockdown with my kids at home doing school. Other parents complained about internet speeds on much faster connections. My little 40 down/2 up held up just fine with my work and kids.

    (Now, due to work requirements I have since switched to cable (300/30 Mbps). I ended up needing more upload bandwidth that my DSL provider simply could not give me. With my kids probably doing school at home for the first month, and the format changing to essentially constant streaming, I am going to need more upload.)

    Thanks for the response. Someone at Untangle might need to tweak the FAQ if Bandwidth Control and QoS works with a PPPoE WAN Connection.

    I'm on Bell Fibe, so I don't think Bandwidth Control/QoS makes a big difference...but I'm always trying to get the best performance possible...

    Cheers
