QoS (Quality of Service) is an advanced feature that helps you set priority for specific applications and devices so that they can perform better with lower latency. QoS allows you to prioritize the online activities that are most important to users on your Deco network. Five predefined settings (Standard, Gaming, Streaming, Surfing, and Chatting) are available, along with a Custom mode where you can define your unique priority settings. Greater bandwidth is allocated to the online activities you prioritize, so even when there is heavy traffic on the Deco network, you can continue doing what you enjoy most. For example, if you are gaming online with friends and are concerned about experiencing lag, you can use the main menu of the Deco app to go to QoS and tap the Gaming preset.


Different Deco models have different support for this feature.

Devices supported both Application QoS and Device QoS:

Deco M5, Deco P7, Deco M9 Plus, Deco X20, Deco X60, Deco W3600

Devices supported Devices QoS only:

Deco M4, Deco E4, Deco W2400, Deco P9, Deco S4, Deco AC1200

Here we take Deco M9 Plus and Deco M4 as examples to show you how to set up the QoS feature.
