You can use the orders 1, 2 or 3 to determine which priority you want to use.

6. Click Ok.

You should have successfully prioritized applications using the Linksys cloud account.


Aside from applications, you may also add online games that you want to have higher bandwidth priority. To do this, follow the steps above but apply it to Online Games found in the Normal Priority section.
