Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

Hey All,

 

All variable bandwidth connections like 4G/5G and Starlink tend to suffer from tremendous bufferbloat. Traditional Smart Queue Management (SQM) isn't a great solution they would need to set a static max bandwidth way below the maximum bandwidth because of the variable nature of the connection.

Nowadays there's an active and well-functioning OpenWRT project called cake-autorate that automatically adjusts CAKE SQM bandwidth settings based on traffic load and one-way-delay or round-trip-time measurements.

 

Would it be possible to integrate cake-autorate into the Deco firmware so LTE and Starlink users can enjoy better gaining and video calling experiences? 

 

Cheers, 

 

Rob
