It is 100% possible to fix excessive downstream buffering from some
misconfigured device with a shaper on the download *on the CPE or
I have been doing that for 15 years. So has everyone that uses nearly
any of the shapers that are available for Linux, at least.
doing it yourself, right, requires a good measurement, and you lose
just a little bit of single-flow bandwidth - typically 5% - but you
get it all back with faster tcp ramp up times, huge improvements in
dns lookups, voip, gaming, and other traffic.
it generally works way better than policers do.
Let's make wifi fast, less jittery and reliable again!
