I have an R1 behind a Nighthawk 7960p and I am considering running the R1 as the main router. 
I don't have any issues running the r1 behind the nighthawk however I do see that constant download and upload speeds on a speed test are throttled. 

I just want to use the geofilter right now. 

Would you guys recommend using the R1 as a main? Just not sure if it's more powerful or will it handle everything?

I also have an Orbi system I can use. I have tons of gear.

Gig internet 50 up.

The R1 can't handle 1Gb speed so it depends if you're bothered about having your speed severely nerfed.

Hey, welcome to the forum!

As above if you use the router as the main one then you'll probably be limited to about 600mbps speed, maybe lower. Given your speeds you are unlikely to experience local congestion so QoS isn't as necessary in your case which means you could do without it and slot the R1 anywhere in your setup and continue to use the Geo-Filter as long as the console/device is connected to it.

Thank you so much! I have 1gig download and 50up. It really is about 750-890 to the local server but I get around 550-600 on a speed test.
