Why need Traffic Control?
As default, the Internet bandwidth is shared by all clients which means that the bandwidth of each client is uncontrollable while they are sharing the Internet. When someone is streaming on Internet or downloading with P2P software, it will affect the performance of other clients. Traffic Control can help avoid the situation.

Step 1 Open the web browser and type the LAN IP address of the router in the address bar (the default is 192.168.1.1), and then press Enter.
Step 2 Type the username and password in the login page, the default username and password are both admin.
