settings in this section.

If you have other devices that support

Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) on your network, keep the
default, Enabled. Otherwise, select Disabled.

data if an error occurs, then select Enabled. Otherwise,
keep the default, Disabled.

Depending on the application, a few attempts may be
needed to set the appropriate bandwidth priority.


To use the QoS policies you have set,

keep the default, Enabled. Otherwise, select Disabled.
