So... if you're playing on console do not... i Repeat do not use "QOS" i had qos off i meant off compared to on and it honestly felt like it's more stable and consistent compared to when it is on.

Maybe it is just towards me, it felt more laggy when qos is enabled. i followed all steps with antibufferbloat and everything 70% to 70% on sliders, even adjusting the sliders and nothing worked. It just felt like a smooth router with qos off. i'm sorry to have to state this but for an expensive router, this router shouldn't be release yet!...

I wouldn't suggest advising this to people, QoS solves a problem and with it off the connection can become much worse. If it works fine for you off then you probably don't have any local congestion in the first place which may not be everyones situation. Have you adjusted while saturating your connection and following this guide? http://support.netduma.com/en/support/solutions/articles/16000074717-how-to-test-your-internet-ping

QoS usually helps, but if it's badly configured it could cause unintentional problems. Distributing your bandwidth poorly, turning the bufferbloat sliders too low, prioritizing too much traffic, these could all cause issues.

Also, the more things you have prioritized, the more processing power will be required to run QoS. It might be that the improvements seen from disabling QoS in your case were because QoS was using so much processing power that the whole router slowed down. This can unfortunately also occur on aging hardware.

So the XR500 is ageing hardware now and cant handle QoS? 🤫
