Multiple Wireless Connections

I have several computers on a wireless connection to a router. Is there any way i can set up some kind of fliter to where it favors two computers? Any way i can set certain computers with a higher priority then the other computers?

Thanks

look for QOS settings in your router not sure if that firmware has it

I believe there is a version of Open WRT firmware you can flash that with that will give it QOS function

The router should have a MAC IP section where you can allow particular adapters to access the network.

aem he is wanting to shape bandwidth to certain computers QOS is what he needs some firmware will let you shape bandwidth by associated MAC but this can not be done by MAC alone you still need QOS

i updated the firmware and could not find a QOS option.

i looked through my products features and could not find a QOS option. Maybe its not applicable here.
