I'm not sure how effective ToS bit manipulation is; it depends on every
device in the chain honouring it for it to work. However, egress bandwidth
is something you /definitely/ have control over, so is probably a more
fruitful place to look.

Linux can do traffic shaping/QoS. You could make your Asterisk box the
gateway on your network and manage the QoS there. http://lartc.org/wondershaper/
is a good starting point for QoS on Linux.
Presumably whatever gateway you have at the moment doesn't do QoS,
otherwise you wouldn't be asking?
