You could flash it with DD-WRT and (ab)use the QOS feature there.

im not entirely sure how this works

If your router supports it, you can flash it with a custom firmware (DD-WRT is well known) and then you'd have access to a lot more advanced settings. 

Main System: Phobos

qos is nice for making sure everyone gets a share of bandwidth but it introduces a ton of lag.

Then I think you're out of luck.

Then replace it with a router that is supported. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but a quick Google search for "pirelli router" results in many articles about a security vulnerability that may or may not be present in your model. Because of this, I'd definitely want to throw it in the trash if it cannot run AdvancedTomato or DD-WRT and replace it with something that can. If you link me to an online website where you can purchase routers in your country, I'll recommend a model that can run this firmware, or one that at least has QoS functions built in.
