    How is bandwidth shared between Voip and P2P?

    Can P2P use (like bit torrent) interfere with using Voip phones on a cable high speed connection?  Or will a router with a QOS feature be enough to safeguard the quality of telephony?

    That would depend on your router. Both your computer AND your router need to support QoS.

    Properly configured P2P should only take up only 50-75% of bandwidth, and VOIP doesn't use a lot of bandwidth, just needs low latency, so QoS would help. Still, turn down the P2P while VOIP is in session.

    I agree with KSchang The only addition I would make is that QOS offers you no help in the cloud.  the vaugue internet blog. QOS really only helps within networks that are self contained and support it.  If your interested in quality calls I'd turn the P2P way down and throttle it.

    That would rely on your hub. Both your laptop or computer AND your hub need to back up QoS. For more detail about it you can try to visit http://www.acesupport.co.uk/
