Just a word on QoS...

QoS needs to be rolled out end to end.

It cannot be just set on just one of the ends, your end. What's the
point on applying QoS rules on the receiving end, where you will drop
packets *after* they have come to you anyway?

However, rolling out end to end QoS with users in charge of their own
little rules is quite an impossible thing to roll out! The first thing
you establish when thinking about QoS policies, as a network operator,
is the trust border: the network boundary where you will stop honouring
user-set QoS flags and replace them with your own...

QoS settings on home routers are mainly there to control outbound
traffic, they are useless for inbound stuff.
