Is restricting the Bandwidth with QoS (Bandwidth Control) always good (Gaming, in my case PUBG)?
My connection: VDSL 85 megabit/s downstream & 40 megabit/s upstream. My Router has no QoS. It uses a DS-Lite-Tunnel.
Saw a lot of videos (Youtube: John Glasscock) that QoS can make the overall quality better (Reducing BufferBloat).
And that Bufferbloat can cause problems. For example that you need a lot of Bullets (too many) for a kill at online shooters.
That was and still is my problem in PUBG!
So I bought that Switch.
My results before at dslreports were always bad. For Overall, BufferBloat and Quality a B, D and B.
I only had to restrict my Bandwidth a bit (10%...in the videos they say 30-50%) to get a perfect speedtest result at dslreports...now A+ A+ A+ (always).
I thought nice...perfect!
But in the game I see no difference!
And now in other forums they tell me "Bandwidth control" with QoS is not good!
Specially not for gaming. And when only when the Badwidth is fully used! Only then Bufferbloat can be a problem. they say those speedtests are nonsense!
Ok maybe...but for me that sounds not logical. Noone uses the Bandwidth allways at 100%! And when something is good when the Bandwidth is fully used,
why it should not be good, when you only use a part of your Bandwidth?
And here in my case that would mean a bad Speedtest at dslreports is better for me when it comes to gaming than a good result!?
And I heard QoS should not be good for the Router? Uses much of the cpu of the Router?
I'm really confused now. I only wanna do my best to have a good connection. And i don't wanna have a disadvantage at PUBG because of my connection.
And a subquestion...what QoS Mode should I use "port bases", "802.1P based" or "DSCP/802.1P Based"?
Sorry, but I can not find something good online about all this. Either nothin or confusing things!
Hope someone who really knows something about this can help me!
