How do I prioritize my PC on my router in the QoS Settings? It's confusing.

This is what I'm looking at currently. http://prntscr.com/7y6d1c

Past routers I've used have been pretty basic in prioritizing certain devices but this takes the cake for being awfully confusing. I just want to have my computer obtain more bandwidth than the other devices. I might be doing everything wrong, so please help me.

The QoS options for your router will be documented in the User Guide.

QoS doesn't isolate specific machines, it isolates kinds of traffic.  For example if you want all VoIP traffic prioritized over normal HTML and other web traffic.  It doesn't matter who consumes the VoIP traffic, its all treated the same by the router. 

If you want to truly limit bandwidth to other machines then you need a feature called packet shaping which is not normally available on consumer grade home router products.  The exception would be some gaming home routers that offer packet shaping as a base feature.
