Quality of Service (QoS) is an advanced feature that prioritizes internet traffic for applications, online gaming, Ethernet LAN ports, or specified MAC addresses to minimize the impact of busy bandwidth.
Netgear routers has an advanced feature called Quality of Service (QoS) to increase the priority of the internet traffic for applications, gaming, Ethernet LAN ports, or we can even specify any MAC addresses to minimize the impact of busy bandwidth.
We need to enable this feature in order to use this.
Steps to enable QoS
- First of all we need to connect a computer to our NETGEAR router and launch a web browser.
- Using routerlogin net login can be done in NETGEAR router. So now enter http://www.routerlogin.com in URL bar and press enter.
- In case http://www.routerlogin.com does not work, we can try with other possible options for NETGEAR:
- Once you are able to open the router’s web based admin page, you will need to enter admin username and password. If you had changed the admin username and password then if those values in the provided fields, else provide the default vales. Default username or netgear router is admin and password in password.
- After login click ADVANCED tab. Now click Qos Setup under Setup.
