Priority
The router can give your devices priority for internet access. You can choose up to three devices – wired or wireless – to move to the front of the line. The rest of the devices on your network will share the remaining bandwidth. You might want to assign priority to work devices, devices that stream video, or devices that you use for online gaming. 

Priority is disabled by default. If a device on the list is unknown, you can determine your device by the MAC address or IP address and rename it in Device List.

Speed CheckSpeed Check measures the download and upload speeds between the internet and your parent node.  It’s a good way to find out whether you are getting the level of service provided by your internet service provider (ISP).

Speeds may vary depending on several factors, including how many devices are connected to your WiFi and what those devices are doing.
  
  • Download is the rate at which internet content is transferred to the router.
  • Upload is how quickly you can upload content to the internet.
