On the 655, priorities run 0-255. By default, all connections are made at priority 128. Lower numbers have higher priority. Hence, the 50 he assigned is pretty high priority. You wouldn't want to set anything too high since then it is completely starving other connections (i.e. not a good idea to set it to 0) but otherwise, the exact numbers such as the 50 he chose aren't all that important. He would have gotten similar results with say 40 or 60. He's really just saying "much higher than default priority".wolf359 wrote:great guide,
i have a d-link dir-825.
its prority settings is 1 thur 8.
how does that translate to your setting of 50?
So, in your case, assuming 1 is high priority and 8 is low, and assuming default is 4 (not sure if these are how your priorities run in the 825, you should check if not sure), his 50 is probably equivalent to your 2. You don't want to set a 1 but you want something higher priority than the 4.
