thanks for the hint. I will check it the next days. I'm now a bit busy.
Also I noticed that TCP throughput went from 15MBit/s PPPoE to 6 MBit/s.
It seems it is about codel, because all streams get the same rate, if using multiple.
I jut want to share my expierence with 3.14 so the developer has some hints.
