We used PerformanceTest 6.1 by PassMark which you can find out more information about here. It has a handy Advanced Networking section which is perfect for our testing.
Doing our best to emulate a real-world performance scenario, I setup a server running Windows 2008 (x64) Server, (2x Xeon Quad Core 3.0 GHz 1333MHz FSB, 4GB DDR2 FB-DIMMS, 2x 146GB SAS drives in RAID 1) and the client PC was an MSI Wind200 With built-in Intel 802.11n adapter and also using various other adapters. The results were gathered by sending data from the Wind to the server at different distances; average transmission speeds were recorded for each.
- Connection Speed
The WNCE2001 can connect at up to 300Mbps; however, there is a slight catch to that. Due to it only having a 10/100 Ethernet port, it cannot operate faster than 100Mbps. So while the extra bandwidth is there, you cannot use it.
As usual, to test the speed of the WNCE2001 I chose three common working points inside my house. One was in the lab within 10 feet our router; the next was in the bedroom roughly 35 feet away and requiring the signal to travel through a wall containing the main house electrical panel and a "wet wall". The last was outside on the back porch, roughly 45 feet from the router. Both the second and third positions were out of the direct line of sight of the router.
The WNCE2001 did not do all that bad considering it is hobbled by the 10/100 port limitation. Still, as we have said, the bandwidth available here is more than enough for the appliances that you would use this with. The only place you might have an issue is with online gaming, but to be honest, we doubt it as most people's internet connections are not going to saturate the amount of bandwidth you have available.
