WISH is short for Wireless Intelligent Stream Handling, a technology developed to enhance your experience of using a wireless network by prioritizing the traffic of different applications.


Enable WISH:

Enable this option if you want to allow WISH to prioritize your traffic.


Allows the router to recognize HTTP transfers for many common audio and video streams and prioritize them above other traffic. Such streams are frequently used by digital media players.

Windows Media Center:

Enables the router to recognize certain audio and video streams generated by a Windows Media Center PC and to prioritize these above other traffic. Such streams are used by systems known as Windows Media Extenders, such as the Xbox 360.


When enabled, this option causes the router to automatically attempt to prioritize traffic streams that it doesn’t otherwise recognize, based on the behaviour that the streams exhibit. This acts to deprioritize streams that exhibit bulk transfer characteristics, such as file transfers, while leaving interactive traffic, such as gaming or VoIP, running at a normal priority.

WISH Rules:

A WISH Rule identifies a specific message flow and assigns a priority to that flow. For most applications, the priority classifiers ensure the right priorities and specific WISH Rules are not required.

WISH supports overlaps between rules. If more than one rule matches for a specific message flow, the rule with the highest priority will be used.


Create a name for the rule that is meaningful to you.



The priority of the message flow is entered here. The four priorities are defined as:

BK: Background (least urgent)
BE: Best Effort.
VI: Video
VO: Voice (most urgent)


The protocol used by the messages.

Host IP Range:

The rule applies to a flow of messages for which one computer’s IP address falls within the range set here.

Host Port Range:The rule applies to a flow of messages for which host’s port number is within the range set here.
