Quality of Service () enhances the experience of using a network by prioritizing the traffic of different applications. A 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 QoS Rules are not required. QoS supports overlaps between rules. If more than one rule matches a specific message flow, the rule with the highest priority will be used.
QoS (Quality of Service):
Enable this option if you want to allow QoS to prioritize your traffic Priority Classifiers.
Allows the D-Link DAP-2553 access point 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.
When enabled, this option causes the access point to automatically attempt to prioritize traffic streams that it does not otherwise recognize, based on the behavior that the streams exhibit. This acts to de-prioritize streams that exhibit bulk transfer characteristics, such as file transfers, while leaving interactive traffic, such as gaming or VoIP, running at a normal priority.
Name: Enter a name for the new QoS rule in the field provided.
Priority: Use the drop-down menu to select the desired priority: Background (BK), Best Effort (BE), Video (VI), or Voice (VO).
Protocol: Use the drop-down menu to choose the appropriate protocol used by the messages: Any, TCP, UDP, Both, IMCP, or Other.
Host 1 IP Range: The rule applies to a flow of messages for which one computer’s IP address falls within the range set here.
Host 1 Port Range: The rule applies to a flow of messages for which host 1’s port number is within the range set here when the Protocol is set to TCP, UDP, or Both.
Host 2 IP Range: The rule applies to a flow of messages for which the other computer’s IP address falls within the range set here.
Host 2 Port Range: The rule applies to a flow of messages for which host 2’s port number is within the range set here when the Protocol is set to TCP, UDP, or Both.
