    GT-AXE16000 and bufferbloat

    I currently have the GT-AXE11000 and the bufferbloat gets no better than a C rating. I was wondering if people who own the GT-AXE-16000 have better score than me? I am thinking of upgrading to the 16000. Test here: https://www.waveform.com/tools/bufferbloat I thought I read somewhere that...

    New to networking - does my router support CAKE?

    Hi, I'm new to this website. Basically about 18 months ago I bought an ASUS RT-AC66U B1. I did some basic research about Bufferbloat and latency, found this forum and decided to buy that as it was a budget router that with Merlin installed would have access to FQ_Codel. I thought this would...

    RT-AX86U QOS/Upload

    List of Smart Queue Management (SQM) routers

    Is there a list of consumer routers with Smart Queue Management (SQM) support with stock firmware?
