Setting up Device Prioritization on your Velop system

User-added image

The Device Prioritization screen on the Linksys app for your Velop system allows you to choose up to three devices for priority usage of your internet connection.  Those devices, whether wired or wireless, will always have the best access when connecting to the internet.  The Linksys app runs a Speed Test to determine how to best distribute Wi-Fi to prioritized devices.  Devices not on this list will share what’s left of your internet capacity.  This article will guide you on how to configure Device Prioritization on your Velop.
