what does these bandwidth monitor's "priorities" even do?

    red is supposed to be the one given the most bandwidth/prioritized traffic, right? then why i keep seeing blue clients bogging down the whole 4mbps ISP connection whereas the clients with higher priority cant -apparently- even load a webpage because of it

    i thought oh well it probably happens because blue client is getting higher priority traffic like video streaming vs red client getting a file download which is set as the lowest priority on adaptive QoS and that probably takes precedence over this other kind of prioritization here

    but thats not it, even when both the red and the blue client are using the same type of traffic lets say youtube streams, they just get the bandwidth divided equally or randomly, so what exactly does this thing even do?

    ps im not talking about adaptive QoS, that thing works brilliantly, but this other type of QoS based on devices does not seem to work at all, or maybe im not getting it
