Quick question what should I change? The Mode or the Transmit Power Control on to the wifi people? So they dont use all my speed? Thanks
The wifi mode controls the maximum speed that a SINGLE device can connect at. Even if you limit this value, several devices together could still gobble all the bandwidth (e.g. 4 devices using 50Mb each). Because it doesn't allow you to control the total amount of bandwidth used, like QoS does. So the only thing you'll get from reducing this value is complaints from wifi users.
Same thing with wifi power. All you'll do is make the wifi more unreliable. Equals more complaints.
An R7000 with some QoS is going to be better than just a Hub 3 on its own, but not as good as Dynamic Qos / Adaptive Qos from Netgear / Asus. How was real life use during the time you had it? Ignoring the tests.
I just received the super hub 3 and I am about to upgrade to the gamer package. Do I still have to change the old router settings? Or the new one will work as normal, as I want to try it without the netgear router that I bought.

I have no idea what you mean by that question and statement.
If you're using a Hub 3 on its own then there are no settings you can change that will affect latency, jitter, or gaming performance.
New hub's don't work as normal straight away, you have to activate them by calling a number. Otherwise the old hub will still be usable.
Just a warning, the Hub 3 is not exactly known for its gaming friendly performance.
As always, you should go by what real world experience you have, not by news reports or what tests show as some people game fine on the Hub 3, however I thought it worth mentioning.
Before you ask, yes, it is possible for the 200Mb tier and gaming tier (200/20Mb) to work on a SH2 or SH2ac, but customer service can only apply it in the first instance to a Hub 3. From then on its a struggle to get someone to reactivate the old hub with the new tier, but it is possible.
None of this will make any difference to bufferbloat, which is a problem on all Docsis hubs.
