Implementing Wireless QoS on a Linksys ADSL Gateway

The Quality of Service (QoS) feature allows you to specify priorities for different traffic. Lower priority traffic will be slowed down to allow greater throughput or less delay for high priority traffic. The default value for 802.11e/QoS is Enable. QoS will be powered on by default to provide the best performance for your wireless connection. The Disable option will provide better performance for the non-MIMO clients in a mixed wireless network. To make sure the Wireless QoS feature of your gateway is enabled, follow the steps below.

Enabling Wireless QoS on the ADSL Gateway 

Step 1:
Access the gateway’s web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.

Step 2:
When the gateway’s web-based setup page appears, click the Applications & Gaming then QoS.

Step 3:
Select your preferred ACK Mode. The default value is No ACK which is commonly used for multimedia applications for faster performance. Burst ACK will provide faster performance but may not provide a reliable wireless connectivity. Immediate ACK is used for reliable wireless connection.

Step 4:
Look for 802.11e/QoS and make sure it is set to Enable.
