    CONFIGURING YOUR NETWORK FOR RAPIDIPTV

    I made this thread about configuring your network for Rapidiptv as many people are making a big mistake by telling here on forums my net is configured well and it is all about RAPIDIPTV so i want a refund. Please configure your network first then speak about problems!


    Ping Test to determine Optimal MTU Size on Router

    In Windows, go to Start and select Run.
    Type in cmd (Windows 2000/XP) or command (Windows 98/ME) into the Open: field. Hit the enter key or click OK. The DOS prompt should open.
    At the DOS prompt, type in ping www.yahoo.com -f -l 1492 and hit the Enter key:

    [​IMG]

    The results above indicate that the packet needs to be fragmented. Repeat this test, lowering the size the packet in increments of +/-10 (e.g. 1472, 1462, 1440, 1400) until you have a packet size that does not fragment:

    [​IMG]

    Begin increasing the packet size from this number in small increments until you find the largest size that does not fragment. Add 28 to that number (IP/ICMP headers) to get the optimal MTU setting. For example, if the largest packet size from ping tests is 1462, add 28 to 1462 to get a total of 1490 which is the optimal MTU setting.
    Change the MTU on the routers WAN Setup.

    Prioritizing RAPIDIPTV traffic with DD-WRT

    Network traffic shaping is an interesting topic, that allows you to ensure that certain traffic gets priority over other traffic. When applied at the ISP level, this can get controversial, as you start getting into Network-Neutrality issues (where one company’s traffic gets priority over another company’s, which could lead to large media corporations silencing grassroots communication).
    At the local network level, though, it means that you can ensure that certain traffic (like streaming Netflix videos) won’t be slowed down just because other, less important traffic (like an off-site backup job), is also flowing through your WAN connection. DD-WRT makes all of this possible (and not too difficult) on the NAT/QoS->QoS tab.

    [​IMG]

    In the first section, titled ‘Quality of Service (QoS)’, set the following options:
    Start QoS => Enable
    Port => WAN
    Packet Scheduler => HTB
    Uplink => (whatever your ISP gives you for an uplink speed)
    Downlink => (whatever your ISP gives you for an downlink speed)

    [​IMG]

    You may want to check out speedtest.net or a similar service to see what your uplink and downlink speeds are. If you can get this information from your ISP, that would be better, since the more accurate these values are, the better this will work. If you enter too high of a value, the shaping won’t kick in because the router will think that it has more bandwidth to paly with. If you choose too low of a value, you will end up wasting bandwidth, and your router will not use it all.
    Now, if you only ever watch RAPIDIPTV from a device that won’t be sending low-prioirty traffic as well, you can just enter that device’s MAC address in the MAC Priority section. Add the MAC address(es) and then select ‘Premium’ for the priority.

    [​IMG]

    On the other hand, if you have a home server connected to your television, and you use this both as a file server (which runs off-site backup jobs to ensure your data is not lost in the event of fire, burglary, or other catastrophe) and as a media player, you will want more fine-grained control, since not all of the traffic to that device will have the same priority.
    So, we will need to set up some Netmask Priority rules. This will give traffic to/from Netflix a higher than normal priority. Inspired by Jonathan Kamens, I first set my offsite backup (to Amazon’s S3 service) a lower than average priority. Then, I followed the same approach to itentify the subnet used by RAPIDIPTV to stream their movies.
    So, I got the IP address for this server using the ‘ping’ command


    Now that we have the IP address (85.14.17.15), we need to know what block of IP assignment it belongs to. IP addresses are assigned to companies in blocks, so it is a good bet that we want to prioritize all traffic to that network in the same way. The ‘whois’ command will help us learn this information:

    The following results may also be obtained via:
    http://whois.arin.net/rest/nets;q=85.14.17.15?showDetails=true&showARIN=false

    Net Range 85.0.0.0 - 85.255.255.255
    CIDR 85.0.0.0/8
    Name 85-RIPE
    Handle NET-85-0-0-0-1
    Parent
    Net Type Allocated to RIPE NCC
    ...
    What we are interested in is the ‘CIDR’ field. This is what refers to the block of IP Addresses that we are trying to prioritize. Go back to DD-WRT, and in the ‘Netmask Priority’ section, add an entry for this network. Then, assign it to the ‘Premium’ priority. (In the screenshot, you can see that I have the S3 network set to ‘Bulk’ as well as the Netflix traffic set to ‘Premium’.

    Let me know if it works for you.
