Wireless Range


For wireless range, we need to refer back to the Network Infrastructure chart on page four of this review. Each chart herein is based on the locations on the table. To make it simple Location 1 is the closest and within Line of Sight, while Location 4 is the furthest away with many walls in between. Location 5 tests the routers ability to generate enough signal strength to penetrate to the second floor of a home.




Within our first range test, we find the D-Link offering increased range in location five over previous units.




Moving to the 40MHz channel width, 868L suffers slightly at location 4, but excels at all others.




Moving to the 5GHz band, we find a nearly identical pattern between the two tested routers.




5GHz 40MHz shifts that pattern slightly in favor of the Amped Wireless RTA15.




5GHz 80MHz increased the range to location three with a tradeoff at location four.
