How Network Priority Works

How Network Priority Works

Utilizing adaptive WiFi and enhanced with Automated Priority, this feature prioritizes time-sensitive applications such as gaming or streaming over less urgent traffic like device software updates. Automated Priority, the default setting for Network Priority, guarantees optimal performance across your home network, seamlessly adapting to your needs in real-time.

In addition to Automated Priority, Nexstream 360 users can customize their network experience further by boosting specific app categories (such as gaming, streaming, or video calls), prioritizing individual users, or targeting particular devices within the home. Boosts can be activated for increments of 3 hours, 6 hours, or until the end of the day, providing flexibility to cater to your needs. You can extend boosts in hourly increments or easily cancel them to revert back to Automated Priority.
