Hi everyone I am hoping someone can help me, I am quite tech savvy but new to the world of bridging and router set ups and this is my first purchases of TP Link products.
To get straight into it: I have purchased a C5400X router and a TD-W9970 modem (to bridge) to replace my ISP modem/router, but my problem is when I have this all set up I am experiencing low pings (between 13-30) but they fluctuate between these variables constantly every second, and this is causing Latency Variation issues in my gaming. For example in Rocket League my pings go from 24 to 37 to 26 to 29 to 32 etc etc each and every second (this happens in all games). This isnt just seen on gaming, I run via cmd ping -t google.com these results are similar there or any other website.
If I remove this set up and just go back to my ISP provided modem/router my ping stays at a lower 11 to all websites, and always stays at 11 with the rare occasion it might hit 12 (it is stable). In Rocket League, my ping there will always stay at 18 and is faultless and I have zero latency.
So now if i stop using that and just use the TD-W9970 and connect to that as a modem/router by itself, my pings were fluctuating again badly, so I coppied all the details from my older modem to this new one and changed the PPP Echo to 6 and my pings were fixed. This is where my issue comes in.
Putting my TD-W9970 back into bridge mode, and connect my C5400X up, looking through all the settings on the router, I cannot for the life of me find where I can change the PPP Echo setting on the C5400X and I fear without this, my desired set up will not work. Can anyone point me in the right direction here please, hopefully im missing something really simple.
Some extra details:
Im on PPPoE VDSL
When I have the ping issues, I still have full speeds and 0 packet loss
Pinging to my C5400X it is always 1ms
I have my pc set as priority
I removed all other connected devices and the issue remained, it isnt bandwidth saturation.
I hope thats detailed enough, thanks for any help in advance :)
