First of applogies for the newbie level of this post, comments and guidance appreciated.
My ISP is Talktalk in the uk, internet over tephone line. i have been using their stock router and its not very good. I also got a TPLINK AC750 from a friend who upgraded, which cant do OpenWrt but was a little bit better.
The issue I am having is latency in games, as soon as other people in the house use the connection i get big spikes in latency. On BF1 on the ps4 you can bring up a performance graph, and I can watch it happening, very frustrating.
I have used the speed tests at DSL Reports and my bufferbloat is rated as a C or a D. So i looked into bloat a bit and found out that OpenWrt could help.
Befor I buy new kit can some kind soul, who knows more than I, please confirm that this setup is viable and may help manage the issue I am having?
I have worked out that I need a modem, so was looking at NETGEAR DM200
For the router I was looking at Linksys WRT 1900ACS
Thanks in advance
