For example, we assume that the UpLoad Bandwidth and DownLoad Bandwidth supplied by ISP are 10Mbps respectively. If you desire highest priority to port 1, lower priority (take 2 level for example) to port 2 and lowest priority to wireless communication, you can configure the router as Figure 5-52 shown. Note: 1. 2. In configuring system Bandwidth, there are two unitages provided: "kbps" means 1000 bit/sec; "Mbps" means 1000,000 bit/sec. You can ask your ISP or network administrator for the actual value of system upload and download Bandwidth. If you can't get it, it is recommended strongly that you set a conservative value to avoid the configure value overstep the actual value. Because a quantum is equal to 32kbps, the port guaranteed bandwidth that you configure is always multiples of 32kbps. Because the wireless communication will engross good-sized of CPU, we strongly recommended that you should choose the lowest priority for wireless to avoid the excessive use of CPU. For G.729A VoIP, both the recommendatory upload and download guaranteed bandwidth are 8kbps and the workable quantum is 1; For H.264 video, both the recommendatory upload and download guaranteed bandwidth are 64kbps and the workable quantum is 2. Be sure to click Save to save the new settings for the router. Wireless configuration is not available at AP Client Router mode.
