I recently bought a wrt3200acm and found it cannot do cake at 300mbit. I want cake to keep the latency down as the speed test showed spikes in 100+ ms range. Now I'm curious about trying an mt76 or ath10k device. My candidates are Archer C7, r6220, and r7800.
c7 may not have the power?
@Mushoz mentioned in Cake at 300+MBit on wrt3200acm in 2019 that his mt76 dir-860l is able to shape at around 650-700 mbit (didn't say which SQM), so maybe the r6220 with 128MB RAM is the good enough and cheapest? Or will I regret not paying for a r7800?
