The Media Prioritization on the router has two levels:
- High Priority - This is for devices, applications, and games that need bandwidth priority to keep them running smoothly such as devices that stream movies or music. Moving your devices, applications, and games from the Normal Priority list to this section will give them higher priority. You can add up to three devices, applications or games to the High Priority list.
- Normal Priority - This is for devices, applications, and games that do not need special bandwidth consideration.
A speed test is run upon launching the Media Prioritization page.
If you need to adjust your Download or Upload speed, click I’d rather use a manually entered speed. Enter your preferred values in the fields and click Ok.
- Applications/Online Games – Allows you to select a pre-configured application or online game and move them to the High Priority list. You can also select Add a New Application or Add a New Game to create an application or game. To know how to add applications or online games, click here.

- WMM Support - This is enabled by default and it improves the quality for audio, video, and voice applications by prioritizing Wi-Fi traffic.
- No Acknowledgement - This specifies whether the router re-sends data if an error occurs. This is disabled by default.
