A750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router JR6150
The reserved address is not assigned until the next time the computer contacts the
router’s DHCP server. Reboot the computer or access its IP configuration and force a
DHCP release and renew.
Quality of Service Setup
You can sue Quality of Service (QoS) to prioritize some types of traffic ahead of others. The
router can provide QoS prioritization over the wireless link and on the Internet connection.
Wi-Fi Multimedia Quality of Service for Wireless Traffic
The router supports Wi-Fi Multimedia Quality of Service (WMM QoS) to prioritize wireless
voice and video traffic over the wireless link. WMM QoS prioritizes wireless data packets from
different applications based on four access categories: voice, video, best effort, and
background. For an application to receive the benefits of WMM QoS, both it and the client
running that application need to have WMM enabled. Legacy applications that do not support
WMM and applications that do not require QoS are assigned to the best effort category,
which receives a lower priority than voice and video. WMM QoS is enabled by default.
Quality of Service Priority Rules and Internet Access
You can give prioritized Internet access to the following types of traffic:
•Specific online games
•Individual Ethernet LAN ports of the router
•A specific device by MAC address
To specify prioritization of traffic, you need to create a policy for the type of traffic and add the
policy to the QoS Policy table in the QoS Setup screen. For convenience, the QoS Policy
table lists many common applications and online games that can benefit from QoS handling.
By default, QoS is disabled for Internet traffic, the default QoS rules, and any custom QoS
rules that you created are not activated, and no traffic is prioritized.
To enable QoS for Internet traffic and activate the QoS rules:
1. Log in to the router.
