1. Prioritize a Specific Device with QoS

QoS (Quality of Service) is designed to ensure the efficient operation of the network when come across network overload or congestion.

I want to:

Specify priority levels for some devices.

For example, I have several devices that are connected to my wireless network. I would like to always prioritize my office laptop.

How can I do that?

1.Enable QoS and set bandwidth allocation.

1 )Visit, and log in with your TP-Link ID or the password you set for the router.

2 )Go to Advanced > QoS.

3 )Select Enable QoS.

4 )Input the maximum upload and download bandwidth provided by your internet service provider. 1Mbps equals to 1000Kbps.

5 )Click Save.

2.Turn on Priority of your laptop and select Always in the dropdown list of Timing. You can keep track of the real time rate and traffic usage of you laptop.


Other Timing choices are available to you, including 1 hour, 2 hours and 4 hours. If you select one of them, the remaining priority time will show up below the Timing of your device.


Now QoS is implemented to prioritize your office laptop.
