Changing user's network configurations in a FAF installer sounds like a terrible idea

This would be changing the dscp value in the header of the udp packets sent out by FAF.

It would be up to the user to change any settings on the router, unless this can be done with upnp settings(when that checkmark is marked).(but this is way over my head)

adjust step 6
6. Select the QoS key and create a new DWORD inside it called:
"Do not use NLA"
This is not a dword but a string value, also make sure you give it value 1.

This is important because without this registry entry the tcp packets are not assigned a dscp value, only the udp packets are.
This makes FAF very quick when going between tabs and searching vault etc.

I just got a chance to go back over this post - Rocket, that's a nice idea but the game runs exclusively on UDP traffic. This appears as if it will not have an effect.
