    Check the manual for your router, and look for a section labeled QoS (Quality of Service). Most nicer routers made in the past few years have these features. They give priority to specific network traffic based on what the device is, and what kind of data is being transmitted.

    It can be a little complicated to setup, so read the manual that came with your router (or is probably still available on the manufacturer’s website) for instructions on how to do this.
