If a large number of network devices are logged into a router, it can slow down Internet performance for a single device. So that important connections get the necessary bandwidth, you can set up rules and filters to prioritize certain devices and applications. There is one exception, however: as soon as a DECT telephone connection is established, it always has the highest priority so that the telephone call can be transmitted in good quality.

How to set up priorities on the FritzBox

Follow our step-by-step instructions or take a look at the brief instructions .

1st step:

Call up the user interface of your FritzBox via fritz.box . Log in there with your password.

2nd step:

Now click on " Internet " on the left and then on the sub-category " Filters ". Then you have to select the " Prioritization " tab here . You can now choose from three different categories: Real-time applications: With this setting, the device or application in the network always receives as much WLAN or LAN Internet as is required. Prioritized applications: The devices or applications named in this way receive up to 90% of the upload data rate, provided the network is not fully used by real-time applications. Background applications : Devices and applications with this designation are always treated with lower priority if your Internet connection is fully in use. If capacity is available, the background applications will of course also have internet access.

3rd step:

Now you have to select the device which should be prioritized from the drop-down list above . Then specify below which network application of the device should be given a priority. If you want to prioritize the device and not a specific application (such as an update installer), simply select " All " here. Then click on " OK ". The prioritization for your device is saved and takes effect immediately. If you want to cancel the prioritization, you can simply delete it from step 2 in the " Prioritization " tab.
