Our ISP assures us that we have enough internet bandwidth.  The phones and pcs are on the same subnet mask.  Should they be separated?

More importantly, what is the speed of your internet connection? Are your phones hosted externally or are you running a server in the office? Without knowing the available bandwidth no one can tell you if changing the settings on the router will do anything to help.

The phone are being hosted externally by Ring Central.  They said it was not necessary to put the phones on a separate subnet.

ISP bandwidth 6mbps up and down.

I set the qos on the router for the voip and seems to be working okay.

We recently found a user that had utorrent download software on his pc and removed it.  Could this have been the major cause of all the problems?
Definitely no reason to waste the company bandwidth on utorrent.
