Any chance we can see the CoDel algorithm implement in Tomato to manage bufferbloat?
(See Ars Technica for article)
Is bufferbloat even an issue on a small router and tiny broadband bandwidth?
There's finally codel support in the kernel. With that, extensive QoS with netfilter rules are no longer required because traffic queues and bottlenecks are well managed by the kernel. 8Mbps with 1Mbps with 6 users of various traffic usage did not choke the Internet connection into a high latency link.
Are you stating that from experience? I'm getting my feet wet and need guidance as to what to buy.
When you say it's in the kernel, than ANY tomato compatible router is now able to implement the CODEL algorithm?
If that is the case, I'm thinking I should buy this RT-N16 on NewEgg for $55AR!
Yes, I have both E4200 (Tomato, with extensive QoS setup) and DIR-825 (with QoS enabled with only uplink and downlink bandwidth configured). The DIR-825 just works, without tweaking. Excessive FTP upload and download does not flood the router into an unusable state for other people sharing it with other Internet services.
For support, get the routers listed here and download the appropriate .bin file with the router model on it:

This should be the right link for well supported routers:

i think someone here is dreaming … there is no codel support in any version of tomato. and bufferbloat is not an issue with tomato anyway.
just ignore this fud guys …
@guest: Where is the one for tomato? Can you link me to documentation?
