Setting up access and prioritization rules for a network application
You can define rules for network applications in the FRITZ!Box so that

- their Internet access is treated with high priority or low priority if the Internet connection is overloaded (prioritization).
Requirements / Restrictions
- You can only regulate applications that exclusively use the TCP and UDP protocols.
