is short for Wireless Intelligent Stream Handling
, a technology developed to enhance your experience, when using a wireless network, by prioritizing the traffic of different applications.
Note: Your router must have a WISH Supported Router.
To enable Wish
Open your web browser and type in the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1 by default).
Enter the username (admin)
and password (blank by default),
and then click Log In
from the top and select WISH
, from the left side.
Step 4: Check the box next to Enable WISH.
Step 4: After WISH is enabled, you can configure it, using the Priority Classifiers and WISH Rules.
Allows the router to recognize HTTP transfers for many common audio and video streams and prioritize them above other traffic. Such streams are frequently used by digital media players.
Windows Media Center
Enables the router to recognize certain audio and video streams generated by a Windows Media Center PC and to prioritize these above other traffic. Such streams are used by systems known as Windows Media Extenders, such as the Xbox 360.
When enabled, this option causes the router to automatically attempt to prioritize traffic streams that it doesn´t otherwise recognize, based on the behavior that the streams exhibit. This acts to deprioritize streams that exhibit bulk transfer characteristics, such as file transfers, while leaving interactive traffic, such as gaming or VoIP, running at a normal priority.
A WISH Rule identifies a specific data flow and assigns a priority to that flow. For most applications, the priority classifiers ensure the right priorities and specific WISH Rules are not required.
WISH supports overlaps between rules. If more than one rule matches for a specific data flow, the rule with the highest priority will be used.
Create a name for the rule that is meaningful to you. Also, ensure that you apply a check mark to the rule.
These check marks tell the router the rule is active.
The priority of the data flow is entered here. Four priorities are defined:
- BK: Background (least urgent).
- BE: Best Effort.
- VI: Video.
- VO: Voice (most urgent).
The protocol used by the data.
Host 1 IP Range
The rule applies to a flow of data for which one computer´s IP address falls within the range set here.
Host 1 Port Range
The rule applies to a flow of data for which host 1´s port number is within the range set here.
Host 2 IP Range
The rule applies to a flow of data for which the other computer´s IP address falls within the range set here.
Host 2 Port Range
The rule applies to a flow of data for which host 2´s port number is within the range set here.
