Chapter 5 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.

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 the password or your TP-Link ID.

2 )Go to Advanced > QoS > Settings.

3 )Select Enable QoS.


1.Qos and NAT Boost cannot be enabled at the same time. To disable NAT Boost, go to Advanced > NAT Forwarding > NAT Boost , unclick it and save your settings.

2.NAT Boost ensure that the router has the best throughput. When NAT Boost is enabled, QoS and Traffic Monitor will be disabled automatically.

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

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 )Click Add in the Middle Priority: 30% column.

2 )Select By Device and then click Scan.

3 )Choose the respective device from the list.

4 )Click Save.


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.
