I have a TP-LINK modem. My web browsing/surfing speed decreases when I'm transferring files between other computers which are connected to this modem, and when a torrent client is downloading from 20+ seeds. I want to give the HTTP connections (port 80) the highest priority possible, so that my connection wouldn't delay when non-HTTP connections are active.
The interface of the modem related to QoS settings are as below:
(See a larger image.)
The settings in the image are for "Rule index #1" (notice the "rule index" line in the image). I can define many independent rules for different applications/ports/IPs. The solution may be prioritizing the HTTP port (80) connections, or two separate rules for delaying torrent and file transfer connections.
I thought that it is related with QoS settings, so I posted a screen shot of that part of the modem interface. If it was related to another setting, please leave a comment and I will edit my post supplying the information you asked for.
