What is QoS?

I was reading up on how to optimize a broadband connection, and someone mentioned that QoS(Quality of Service i think) in winXP made everything quick.

What exactly is it, and how do I implement it?

brief infomation about QoS

QoS is a kind of network technology.

And this technology is depend on routers setting.

Therfore even if you set a qos in your WinXP, it dose not improve any network speed.

briefly, when you send a message with a special flag in IP layer field

Routers handle it first than any other normal received packet.
