What can improve unloaded latency?

I am getting 40+ ms of unloaded latency from the waveform bufferbloat test. I get good download and upload using cake SQM but nothing seems to affect the unloaded number. Is there anything I can configure to improve it?

Wired or wireless? Might be worth comparing results from both to determine where the latency is being added.

Unloaded is basically your usual "ping". There is nothing much to do about it if you are already wired ethernet. (You could also look for a new ISP with lower ping).

Make sure you are on a gigabit link with good Cat6 cables. Also depending on your router you may be able to change the cpu governor from ondemand to performance or increase the lowest base frequency.
