XR500 and S8000 Setup

For ideal use...

Have all wired devices plugged into S8000 switch and also use another router in AP mode for WiFi.

My question is will the qos in the xr500 and s8000 conflict with each other or will work correctly? 

My setup....
ISP modem(must use) > XR500 router > S8000 switch.

S8000 ports > 
Port 1 Xbox one x
Port 2 Nvidia shield
Port 3 Laptop
Port 4 Nvidia shield
Port 5 R8000P router AP Mode
Port 8 Uplink
Model: XR500| Nighthawk Pro Gaming Router

I just responded to your other post about this but I'll paste it here too:

Yes they probably would. I would highly suggest you disable the QoS features on the switch. The XR500 QoS is absolutely capable of ensuring your network doesn't suffer any local congestion. You would have a much better experience relying on the state of the art QoS on the XR500.

As far as I know, you cannot "disable" QoS on the S8000.  I've checked the settings and wasn't able to find an option to disable QoS.  I've have QoS enabled on the XR500 and S8000 and haven't noticed any issues w/ devices connected (wired / wireless) on my home network.

My Setup: Cable (200Mbps / 12 Mbps) > Modem (Netgear CM1000) > Router (Netgear Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR500) > Switch (Netgear Nighthawk S8000 Gaming & Streaming Switch) (HP Pro Curve Switch x2 - J9449-60001)

Only way I can think of is change the preset mode into standard and turn off IGMP snooping, put each port to high priority with no limits for in rate and out rate.

That sounds like it would do the job or you could follow the above advice, if you get any issues then try that
