Is there a way to let foobar always have so much bandwidth like it needs to stream Radio Stations? So, when a download manager (or more) is downloading all the time often when there is no bandwidth left for foobar the music coming from a Radio Stations falters for a time goes on, falters and so on. Suppose the max. bandwidth - which differs - varies from 1,2 MBit/s to 1,7 MBit/s and the download manager uses between 0 and 1,7 MBit/s, how can I foobar make to always have the bandwidth it needs to stream music flawlessly, e.g. 128 kbps from a station?

Just make sure to get a Tomato (or OpenWRT, DD-WRT) compatible router then you can set up QoS for whatever service you want.

There are many more models compatible but this is the most updated list for now: http://tomato.groov.pl/?page_id=69


Best Single Band N (2.4GHz 300Mbps): ASUS RT-N16

Really good Dual Band N (2.4 300Mbps and 5GHz 300Mbps) (refurb good price if you can find it): Cisco Linksys E3000

Best Dual Band N (2.4GHz 300Mbps and 5GHz 450Mbps) for the price ($79.99 refurb from Cisco Linksys Store if you're in USA): Cisco Linksys E4200-RM (E4200v1)

Best Dual Band N (2.4GHz 450Mbps and 5GHz 450Mbps): ASUS RT-N66U

Best Dual Band AC (don't think you need this yet. yet = for at least 2-3 years): ASUS RT-AC66U
