The wiki is editable with a registration and the vast majority of
bufferbloat folk are not native English speakers. Please feel free to
correct whatever you may.

Hmm. I have not seen this behavior but I do not run wireless much right
now. Anyone else?

You just override the default for ge00.

Berlin is presently a development build. Documentation lags.

Stable is Modena.

Discussed on the list. All you have to do with Berlin is set it up via the
AQM tab.

The core numbers we care about are your uplink and downlink settings.

Which are?

Rule of thumb is to try 85% of your rated bandwidth for those and work up
from there.

Enable the ADSL option.

Also on this list on berlin was discussed that perhaps htb is
malfunctioning at very low rates.

The roadshow is on cable at 20 Mbit down 5 up. There is no magic solution
for ever lower bandwidths than that.

I have been fiddling with much despair with a model for under 4 Mbit.

Lastly efq-codel is emphatically the wrong thing in this case. It is just
where i stick the crazier ideas.

Please stick  to fq-codel or nfq codel.
