Chapter 9 QoS

This chapter introduces how to create a QoS (Quality of Service) rule to specify prioritization of traffic and minimize the impact caused when the connection is under heavy load.

It contains the following section:

Prioritize Internet Traffic with QoS

1. Prioritize Internet Traffic 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 or applications.

For example, I have several devices that are connected to my wireless network. I would like to set an intermediate speed on the Internet for my phone.

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 > Settings.

3 )Select Enable QoS.

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

5 )Click Advanced and drag the scroll bar to set the bandwidth priority percentage.

6 )Click Save.

2.Add a middle priority QoS rule for the phone.

1 )Select By Device and then click View Existing Devices.

2 )Choose the respective device from the list.

3 )Click OK.


If you want to delete a QoS rule, click to remove the responding rule from the list.


Now QoS is implemented to prioritize Internet traffic.
