Bufferbloat Test

Post #1 by Eyerex » 1 year ago

Bufferbloat is a phenomenon in packet-switched networks, in which excess buffering of packets causes high latency and packet delay variation (also known as jitter), as well as reducing the overall network throughput.

Test to see if you have Bufferbloat http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest

I had to tweak my upload and download speeds for a while plus set Queueing Discipline to fq_codel before i could get A for Bloat and Quality but i always get D for speed as my speeds are a bit crap anyway

If you use open source firmware on your router like DD-WRT or Open WRT look in the NAT/QoS tab and then Queueing Discipline which you should change to FQ-CODEL and then set your Downlink and Uplink to just under your max speed

If your using stock firmware on your router and don't have extra settings for say FQ-CODEL you can try just going into Quality Of Service settings and lowering your down and upload speeds which should help

I don't have any of them i have SFQ, CODEL and FQ_CODEL i would set your speeds a little lower than max and test then try the other queueing disciplines to see if they help
