From the main menu, under Advanced, select QoS Setup. The QoS Setup screen displays:

Using WMM QoS for Wireless Multimedia Applications

The WNDR3700 router supports Wi-Fi Multimedia Quality of Service (WMM QoS) to prioritize
wireless voice and video traffic over the wireless link. WMM QoS provides prioritization of
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 must be 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. You can disable it in the QoS Setup screen, shown in

Figure 6-2 on page 6-8

, by clearing the Enable WMM check box and clicking Apply.
