Default How can I find out if the boy is hogging bandwidth (Sky)?

I've googled this question and can't find an explanation I understand.

I've looked around the admin settings and can't see where I can get QoS info that's been mentioned.

The internet is borderline unusable when he's on it with his xbox.

It's doable but not straightforward. You'll need to download some new (free) firmware for your router.

As long as he hasn't found a way to do it.

Could put your router into modem only mode and get a google wifi router. It tells you how much data each connected device is using in the app.

Doesnít look like it is possible to do any QoS config on that.

As Sapien said, you can put your Sky router into modem only mode & get a router that will allow you to do what you want.
Iíve done that with my Virgin Superhub because it is f***ing superw***.

Get a broadband speed test and check your speed without him on it vs when he is in it? Compare the two and it may give you the answer you need?
