The association between wired clients and the adaptive cpu clock.

As a reminder, I am writing this post because the original post is locked.
So I'm posting it separately.


As I wrote here, if the main cpu clock is set to max when disabling the runner, that may affect the wired connection.

My guess is that, for example, if you are sending and receiving a low number of packets on a low bandwidth, the cpu clock will remain low and you may not get the responsiveness you need.
(Like a high-end graphics card running low-end games)

There are also tips on the openwrt forum to set the cpu clock to maximum when using sqm(cake).

I currently only use wireless connections, but please note if you have wired gaming devices.

It depends on the model. In the case of the AX86U it doesn't support changing the CPU power settings, despite what the message from runner might imply. So you're just turning the Flow Cache HW acceleration on and off.
Code:

CPU Speed                      N/A

I am probably speaking out of my arse by piping up but I seem to recall that Asus has been locking down the clock speeds (from allowing user changes via command line) for at least a year.
Though that could have been specific to the popular dual core routers running 800/1000 Mhz like the ac86u.

Used to be able to hex file edit a modded CFE for the clock rate back "in the day" but at some point it seems to me that Asus hardcoded something.

@slidermike You're talking about something different. The post above is referring to CPU power states.
