Generally, QoS is set up to prioritize internet traffic. Although it is not a complicated task, you can easily setup QoS on your router.
To setup QoS on TP-Link router, just follow these points -
1.Launch your favourite internet browser and type “192.168.0.1” in the browser’s address bar. After this, a login page will appear on the screen where you have to enter username and password that you have set for your TP-Link router.
2.After logging into TP-Link router setup wizard, tap on Advanced> QoS > Settings. After this, you have to choose “Enable QoS” Checkbox. Then, tap on NAT Boost.
Also, deselect “Enable NAT Boost” option and save the changes.
3.Now, you have to input maximum upload and download bandwidth that is provided by your ISP. To set the bandwidth priority percentage, first, tap on Advanced and then drag the scrollbar to the particular value. After this, tap on Save button.
4.In next step, you have to add QoS rules.
a)Set high priority rule for FTP server -
To set a high priority rule on FTP server, first, move to High-priority section and then click on Add. Press a click on radio-box that is displaying next to “By Application”. After this, choose FTP from the displaying results. Then tap on OK.
