    Do you have any experience with powerline adapters? I was thinking of getting one, because even with QOS settings, wifi connections are poor (D rating for bufferbloat), and while running a solid cable from my router is feasible, it will be a hassle. Would one of these adapters help me, or am I better off waiting until I am able to run a cable>

    I have not used them, but I would look into it. See if you can find some reviews on wirecutter, tomshardware or one of the other good review sites.

    I would also find a way to solve your bufferbloat issues. I don't know if that will also solve your overall gaming performance issue, but it is certainly part of the problem. I went from a D to an A on bufferbloat with DD-WRT properly configured.
