[Make-wifi-fast] Updated LEDE build with airtime patches

I should have said that I stopped using your config,  went back to
default.  Was having issues, as I was learning LEDE and luci, (probably
more me than it) so config'ed from scratch,  and THAT is what I used when
going from your build to Toke's.

I could imagine eventual problems as what's in a LEDE version changes too
much,  question is what is too much and how do you know?

Has what I done pretty much accomplished the same thing?

What I think you should do is completely reset the router's settings in the
update firmware tab on that new build, and just setup the WiFi names and

Then go to luci-app-sqm, set your speeds, select cake, and select

The settings file I set you was for a very thorough setup.  I think you
should just go with basic WiFi and Cake to avoid conflicts
