Networking/Router program preference.

I was wondering if anyone knows if this is possable, and if so, how to do it:

I have 4 computers, through a router, cable modem. Is there any way to have the router recognize when a particular program(warcraft)or when a particular port is being used and if so, allocate all the bandwidth that program/port can use, dividing the remaining bandwidth to any other programs/ports running on the lan?

This is my QoS

So I click enable, and then how do I actually had a program/game?

You have to figure out which port a game is using? How would you do that, and yes I should know this by now. lol

well the game site should tell you what port it is using (game docs should also) then you tick optimize gaming applications.

Under that you add the required details -

Game name
How much of a priority it will have

(Not sure what its like under windows)

Norm all there is to it, although im no expert when it comes to QoS - there are bound to be gaming sites out there that explain it better than i :)

Let's clarify something about QoS..

You can only really control outbound QoS - meaning the traffic you send out of a device. You really have very limited control over inbound QoS because you can only sort the packets once you get them.

OK fitz, thanks. I made my main machine(mac addy) and the program highest priority in QoS, but I'm not sure it really made a difference or not.
