You're looking at QoS settings. I don't know if the firmware on that router will do what you want but if you can get dd-wrt on it, it supports it. just google it with your router or look on their site to see if your router is supported.

Yes that router supoports QoS. The settings can be applied in the QoS menu.

Looking at the manual your default interface will not do what you want it to do. Yours will do protocol QoS which means you can assign an IP address to have priority using a certain  protocol which is not what you want.

 

This is your modem/router from your ISP isn't it?

Why do you want to do this?  There may be a better solution.  I can only see implementing this if you have three users who are all constantly downloading.

I want to reduce the usage of other wifi users so we will have equal speed :)

Really if you want to be able to control what users are doing on the network, either build a pfSense box with Wireless Access Points for users to connect back to the box.  Or use a router that you can load Tomato, OpenWRT or DD-WRT, to give you better control of what users are doing.  With the one you have, you are going to have to either go to the mfg. forums and lookup info on how to set QOS on that product, or download the manual.

 

Basically you are just putting A, B, C and giving those IP's a priority from lowest to highest.  Problem is that unless you assign a static IP locked to the MAC ID of the machine, you are going to run into problems.

 

I would just sit down with everyone, get all on board that with the current speed you are paying for from the ISP, is not enough for what everyone wants to do at the same time, and that the whole group needs to be on the same page, in the fact that they are causing more headaches for the rest of the group, when they hog the bandwidth.

Aside from QOS feature, you can create a new wireless SSID from the router settings by Network - WLAN - Multi SSD. Tick VAP0/VAP1, etc. then create a new SSID virtual access point with different password (pre-shared key) and on security menu, tick VAP0/VAP1 depending on which access point is active. You would have another access point aside from the default routers SSID of which you could access individually.

1,turn your router over and you can see information of IP address and administrator.

2,open browser and copy in the IP address and enter.Type in account name and password.

3,Open DHCP servers->clients list,you will see all the devices connected.

4,you will see control of broadband.After you set it,just restart your router,it will work
