How to set up QoS on the TP-Link Wi-Fi router that doesn’t support HomeCare function
The QoS (Quality of Service) feature allows you to prioritize the internet traffic of specific devices to guarantee a faster connection when you need it the most. The router has preset an appropriate bandwidth allocation policy, so you don’t need to set different priorities for all devices. Simply set the desired device to High Priority and set how long you want it to remain the high priority, then the device will be allocated with more bandwidth when the network is overloaded.
I have a TP-Link router Archer AX10 and I want to prioritize my computer for the next 2 hours when the network is overloaded.
1. Visit http://tplinkwifi.net, and log in with your TP-Link ID or the password you set for the router. If you don’t know how to do that, please refer to
2. Go to Advanced > QoS.
3. Enable QoS.
4. Enter the upload and download bandwidth provided by your internet service provider. Click Save.
Note: QoS will take effect only when the total network traffic rate is greater than the bandwidth you have set here.

5. Under Device Priority, find your computer and toggle on Priority. Click the entry in the Timing column and select 2 hours as the duration you want the device to be prioritized for.
Done! Now, the traffic of this computer will be prioritized to guarantee a faster connection for the next 2 hours when the network is overloaded.
