What is QoS? QoS is a popular feature that ?guarantees? better service to selected traffic on a network. The goal in configuring QoS is to give priority and attention to certain devices or services so that they can use the maximum available throughput and speed available on a certain network when it is needed. Accessing the Router?s Setup Page 1. Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape. 2. When the browser window opens, go to the Address bar and type in the router's IP Address and click on the Go button (192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of Linksys Routers). 3. A window will appear prompting for a ?User Name? and a ?Password?. Leave the ?User Name? field blank, and type in the router's password and click on the OK button to login (admin is the default password). 4. The router's web-based ?Setup? utility should then load. Enabling and Configuring QoS 1. Once in the Router?s Setup page, click on the Applications and Gaming tab. 2. Next, click o n the QoS sub-tab. 3. Select the Enable option to turn on QoS features. NOTE: If you do not see the QoS sub-tab, you must upgrade your router?s firmware to the latest version. See Answer ID 1508 for more information. The WRT54G offers three (3) different types of Quality of Service (QoS) options: MAC Address-based, Application-based, and Port-based. Choose the appropriate type for your needs. · MAC Address-based QoS: In the Device Priority section, you can specify the hardware MAC address of the computer or device that you wish to give priority to. You can assign a Low or High priority for up to two (2) specific MAC addresses found on your local network. · Port-based QoS: In the Ethernet Port Priority section, you can control bandwidth according to which of the physical LAN ports your computer or device is plugged into. You can assign a Low or High priority to computers or devices connected to any of the router?s LAN ports (1 through 4). NOTE: You can also Enable or Disable ?Flow Control? for each LAN port, which is a technique that controls the speed at which data is received. If Flow Control is enabled for a certain port, then a receiving device is not overwhelmed with data as it is coming in. You can even control the flow further by specifying the Incoming Rate Limit to a certain speed. · Application-based QoS: In the Application Priority section, you can control bandwidth with respect to a specific application being used on the network. You can assign a Low or High priority to a particular application or service. There are several pre-configured Web services that use well-known ports, like FTP and HTTP, which you can use. You can also customize up to three different applications by entering an Application Name and the Specific Port # that the software application uses. If you are unsure of the port number that is used for a particular application, contact the software manufacturer for more information. 4. When you have finished configuring QoS settings, click on Save Settings button to save your changes.

Which network settings are you trying to write? In general, try getting Network Magic. It's a free download and trial and can help with some Linksys/Cisco problems.
Also, you may try getting into the firmware itself. Use any web browser and enter the following IP address as your URL: 192.168.1.1. At that point you're directly accessing the settings on the router and should be able to make any changes you need. By the way, this only works if you're connected directly to the router via Ethernet cable.

You need to check the gateway address of your router and that will be the address of your router setup page. To get the gateway address, Go to start> run> type cmd > On the blinking cursor, type "ipconfig". Look for the gateway address.
Open your internet explorer enter the address of your gateway, press enter . You will see a prompt asking you for a username and password.leave the username box empty and enter the password you setup for your router when you initially install it.

Tips for a great answer:
MAC (Multimedia Access Control) addresses are unique sets of codes assigned to electronic devices that identify the devices on a network. MAC filters work by either allowing or denying only specific MAC addresses. MAC filters are a great security measure; however, if your network needs to be open to public or guests, or you're adding and removing devices often, then you should consider turning off MAC filtering.
