Router


[link to this post]
 
Getting an 'F' continually on buffer bloat tests, and obvious speed bursts. Could be the ISP, but I've decided to change the router first before tackling them. It's got a terrible wireless signal anyway.

Anybody recommend a decent router?

Got this one and very happy with it. It's a few years old now so there could well be better options.

modern asus routers support the codel shaper which is excellent for managing buffer bloat.

personally I suggest the ac68 (not the dsl variant), because that is supported by a fork of merlin's firmware based on an older branch which was made before asus started crippling their wifi performance to comply with american regulations.

Thanks for the tip, but were the American regulations based on safety concerns, and did we or did we not not adopt them here?

I don't desperately need a better wireless signal, as I already use a homeplug upstairs. In fact a better signal might have the undesired effect of interfering with discrimination, in terms of automatic connection. The signal is relatively well zoned as it is, but it does tend to hang on to the homeplug from time to time, even when you walk back into the room with the router in it. Extra overlap could get really annoying,

The buffer bloat thing is much more interesting though. Do you have a link with some more detailed info?
