    I've read multiple threads on setting up QoS, and I think I have a good grasp of the basic setup.
    My goal is to achieve the following:

    1) Give Xbox Live! highest priority
    2) Give P2P (torrent) lowest priority
    3) Leave the rest of the traffic untouched

    My question concerns the other devices on my network (routers 2 and 3, laptop, pc, ...).
    Do I need to create an entry in the Classification for each one of them, or only for the torrent box and the Xbox?

    You don't need to specify each device in QoS, unless you want to give that particular device a higher or lower priority.

    Why do you have so many routers?

    Unless u have strong reasons to maintain multiple subnets, I suggest u keep all the computers within the same subnet by configuring the secondary routers as bridges.

    I need 3 routers because the signal between the basement (entry point for the cable) and the second floor is too weak to link the routers in WDS. Adding one in the middle, on the first floor gives me a much better signal.

    All routers are on the same subnet (192.168.1.x). Router 1 and Router 2 are hardwired together, Router 2 and Router 3 are linked in WDS mode.

    I expect you have those other routers working as SWITCHES (nothing connected to their WAN ports, and DHCP server OFF), and not actually performing any NAT routing. Assuming that is the case, then you don't need to worry about them. The QOS only acts between the LAN and the WAN, and the QOS router will see the right IP addresses.

    mraneri, your assumptions are all right.

    I removed the entries for the router and the computers.

    Everyone, thanks for the help.
