wait. QOS for tomato is only enabled on the WAN port. how are they testing it on internal transfers?
I misspoke sorry. You are right, this is routing performance as smallnetbuilder tests (see This is actually a key point because virtually no one has a 20+ megaBYTE internet connection, at least at home. I pick that number because that is the routing speed of this router with QoS on using either Asus or Tomato, with Tomato being slightly faster and having a better QoS implementation.

QoS is essential if you push your internet connection speed with simultaneous VOIP (e.g. Vonage, Ooma, Skype), gaming, large high speed downloads, high bandwidth streaming (e.g. Netflix HD), and/or have a lot of users. Codel will help keep latency low for real-time applications (e.g. VOIP, gaming). Using any of these applications solo will be fine without QoS (as long as you have enough bandwidth).
