Wireless Throughput

Utilizing the 2.4 GHz band at 20 MHz, the RTA15 peaked at 95 Mbps.

On the 40 MHz channel width throughput was similar to what we found with the 20 MHz width.

Moving over to the 5 GHz band, wireless throughput peaked at 95 Mbps, again close to what we saw on the 2.4 GHz band.

At 40 MHz, the throughput of the RTA15 picked up quite a bit, peaking near 250 Mbps.

Testing the throughput of the RTA15 at 5 GHz 80 MHz, we find the router peaking just over 300 Mbps.

 

In addition, the large spike in throughput when the router moves from 200 Mbps to 300 Mbps shows us that Tx beamforming is indeed working.
