Link Speed by Location
Link Speed by Location offers valuable insight into the working throughput of the router at specific locations.
At the 2.4 GHz 20 MHz band, we find the RTA15 to do very well through the entire range of testing. At its peak, it hits the maximum of the 20 MHz channel at 144 Mbps.
Moving to 40 MHz, we find the RTA15 hold onto the full 300 Mbps until we move out past 50ft, after which it connects at roughly 270 Mbps.
The 5 GHz 20 MHz band allows the router to connect at 180 Mbps within line of sight, moving out from the router the signal drops off rather quickly eventually connecting at 30 Mbps at location 4.
Using the 40 MHz channel width, we found the signal to do quite well through locations one and two. Moving our further, we connect at 150 Mbps at location three and 50 Mbps at location 4.
Firing up the 5 GHz 80 MHz band, we connect to the RTA15 at an impressive 867 Mbps within locations one and two. Moving out, we connect at 300 Mbps at location three and 90 Mbps at location 4.
Power consumption figures were taken from our Kill-A-Watt meter throughout testing.
Here we find the RTA15 using 21 watts at its peak with an idle of 15 watts.
