Hello everybody,

 

I'm asking what might be a pretty dumb question but: what's the actual difference between the 4 setting of the QoS submenu on a Powerline? 

 

On my TL-WPA7517 I get Internet, Online Gaming, Audio&Video and Voice over IP.

 

While I understand the broader aim of this, I would like to fully get what are the tradeoffs of each of them in order to make an educated guess for my main usage.

 

Thank you in advance,

Here is a FAQ we have regarding QoS: https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/1613/

 

Should there be network congestion due to multiple devices QoS will prioritize the selected category data through the powerline network.

@Tony thank you. So, if I understand correctly, it's simply a prioritization in case of multiple connections and not a modulation of the connection itself to favour some characteristics (like a lower ping for Online Gaming for example)?

Correct, it would come into play with multiple connections happening. If you only had one computer connected and gaming there really wouldn't be anything being prioritized.
