You can use the QoS (Quality of Service) feature to prioritize the connection of a particular device for a set duration, such as a family member's laptop for one hour during a video call.

Before you start:

  • You should have a TP-Link HomeShield router and have an iOS device running iOS 9 or later, or an Android device running Android 4.2 or later.
  • You have downloaded and installed the TP-Link Tether app/TP-Link Deco app on your device.

Follow the steps below to set up this feature:

Note: In this article, we will take the Tether app as an example to illustrate the configuration.

  1. Open the TP-Link Tether app. Tap the hamburger menu and tap Login. Use your TP-Link ID to log in. If you don’t have a TP-Link ID, tap Sign Up.  The Tether app will guide you through the rest. Refer to How to create a TP-Link ID for further detailed instructions.
