I have a gaming PC that lag is driving me crazy on, and an AC86U with the latest Merlin FW. All I want is to make sure that this one PC has "first dibs" (for lack of a better term) at the network before any of my dang kids streaming or zooming or whatever. I can get a round a little but if someone could walk me through whatever process is necessary I would really appreciate it. I dont get a lot of time to play and when I do fighting with lag isn't fun. THank you.

Also, test your upload/download a number of times at various times of the day and different days of the week. You might have bought a 400/20 connection (similar to a friend's Spectrum service), but sometimes it gets as bad as 100/5. If you want everything to operate smoothly even during periods that the cable company's network is congested you'll have to set your QoS bandwidth to about 90 - 95% of the lowest speeds you see after extended testing.
