My internet at this flat sucks:

however even with that sort of connection I would expect to get a stable ping in game unless there is strain on the network. So I get the idea that the only thing I could do to fix that would be to prioritize traffic to my PC.

 

But we have a pretty crap router: TP-Link TD-W8968.

 

Is there anything I can do with the pre-installed firmware?

 

If it's any help: http://puu.sh/ly53N/4e7b0112a7.png

If there's anything there, it is probably under "Bandwidth Control". Other than that, I can't really help.

I would suggest the Xiaomi Mi-Wifi Mini router. Picked mine up for 30 USD and I'm running OpenWRT on mine with the PandoraBox 14.09 r512 / LuCI Trunk (0.12+svn-r512) GUI.

It works rather nicely, have VLANS and SQM setup on a VDSL2+ Connection.

Theres plenty of ram and storage for more scripts if you want.

 

So if you were to pick one of these up, you could do general terminal bashing and setup possibly a round robin distrubition system and an efficient QoS system.

1. I completly agree, I've got 3 of those xiaomi routers in my house as APs.

 

2. Didn't realize you could put OpenWRT on them, which is awesome, so I'm going to do just that.

 

3. Only problem I have with them is they have wireless AC, but don't have gigabit ports.

 

4. Judging by the OP, I think he's stuck with the current setup (since he's only using the stock firmware)

 

So yeah, if you can get yourself something new, get a xiaomi, unless you can afford something a bit better (with gigabit ethernet hopefully), however, if you can't get something new:

 

 - Heavily consider a 3rd party firmware, when done correctly, chances of it bricking are very very minuscule.

 

 - Look for QoS settings in your router, however IIRC, my old router (W8960N) had pretty cruddy QoS settings.

Cheers for the replies :) 

 

I'll have to look into it more closely, but those options sound very sensible. The fact that I'm just a flatmate here and don't necessarily have control is a pain, and sadly fibre won't be here until after June 2016 (even though just down the other end of my road has fibre, and one block in every other direction does too).

 

Only other thing I'm unsure of is whether my theory that this connection is good enough for stable ping is true or not.
