Bufferbloat nightmare

2: Seeker

My partner plays a lot of online games. As soon as I upload a tiny file on a different computer  it causes the game to disconnect and reach skyscraper level ping times. Over 900!


This is due to bufferbloat, If you don’t know what it is, you can read about it on Wikipedia,


The test on says my Buffebloat rating is F - the worst rating you can get. This is because the Huawei router is garbage,


Does anyone have any ideas on how to improve my situation? Any replacement router recommendations? Or perhaps introduce a buffer bloat normalisation proxy? It seems like the existing router has no adjustable settings that would help this.
