How to set up home network to prioritize my traffic?

My daughter loves to stream Netflix and music all evening, which is fine except when I have to work from home and it’s important that I have a decent internet connection. Is there a way to prioritize my network traffic, so my work doesn’t suffer due to Twilight and Justin Bieber?
Depending on type of router you have you should be able to prioritize based on type of traffic and/or based on a computer (mac or ip address). Login to your router and take a look at the QoS (quality of service) section, you should see controls to either specify your device or traffic types.
To login to the router:
Find the router ip and enter it in a browser’s address bar (most common or you can find it through command prompt).
Login to the router (usually admin for both username and password)
