QoS: How To

QoS or "Quality of Service" is our newest feature that we have introduced to our AmpliFi app (available for Android and iOS devices). This feature gives the user the ability to prioritize bandwidth to certain clients or devices on your network based on how they are used. Please see the below steps to learn how to enable QoS for your network and optimize your router to its full potential.

1. Open the AmpliFi app.

2. Locate and select the Family tab.

3. From your list of connected clients, slide your finger from right to left on any given wireless client to open QoS options.

Ex.

1. Select a device from your client list.

2. Slide the selected client from right to left. This will make the QoS menu appear.

3. For this example, streaming will be selected prioritizing the iPhone for streaming use.

4. A small icon will appear below the device title confirming the QoS setting was successful.

    Good Morning!!! Could you indicate or give more info about what each QOS profile does? Thank you!!!

    Great question Germán! Each QoS profile defines how the device or client would preferably be used in the home. For ex. "Gaming" would represent top priority for gaming consoles or computers. "Streaming" would be selected for devices/clients used for streaming music, movies, TV shows, etc. This is a basic way of organizing your bandwidth so your devices better communicate with your router.

    Is there any way to set QoS priority for wired clients?  Even if I can't set the priority for individual wired clients I would love to be able to set the priority based on a given port.  Thanks!

    So, understand the prioritization between the three, but how do they interact which each other? How does device 1 And device 2 (if both on gaming or stream) prioritize? Is normal the lowest then?

    Rob, currently we are making QoS prioritization for wireless clients only. Plans for wired clients is currently unknown.

    Daniel, gaming holds top priority and then streaming would be second to that. Followed by normal being the lowest priority. Clients that share the same QoS prioritization will share bandwidth importance.

    It's great that there's QoS control now, but most people with a PC for gaming prefer to plug directly into the router to reduce latency/interference. Doesn't it sort of defeat the purpose of having a gaming QoS if you can't set that for a hardwired connection? Even if it's just an option by a specific port since you won't have the device information, that would be a great compromise.

    Please, add a " low-priority" profile ;)
