Setting up the Belkin router's Intellistream QoS feature using the web-based setup

Intellistream is a feature of Belkin routers that prioritizes video, Voice over IP (VoIP) and gaming traffic for a better online entertainment experience.

For example, two (2) users are connected to the router at the same time: one is streaming videos while the other is downloading music.  Using Intellistream, your Belkin router will provide priority to video streaming resulting to faster performance.

NOTE:  Prioritization of software updates like Bittorrent/FTP downloads will remain unchanged.  To avoid interference with your videos, it is recommended to schedule your software updates.

Follow the steps below to know how to set up Intellistream Quality of Service (QoS) on your Belkin router.  For steps on how to set up Intellistream using the Dashboard, click here.
