NightHawk X4S QoS Issues

Hi, I recently purchased my X4S Night Hawk router to allieviate some lag issues I was having.


I have two roomates and we are all constantly gaming. I have my computer directly connected via ethernet into the Router, and my device is set to highest priority, but anytime either of them download something (via steam or ect), my ping skyrockets.(Even though their devices are set to low). I've looked under QoS Setup to try and set a rule to limit download speed on specific devices or programs, but the option to add a rule is not there.


Am I missing something in settings that would resolve this issue? 


Thank you in advance!

Re: NightHawk X4S QoS Issues

Per device QoS doesn't seem to be possible.


Maybe Parental Controls could squelch them.
