Wireless Range

 

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

2.4 GHz 20 MHz testing had the Buffalo right alongside our previous routers through the first three locations. We then have the Buffalo dropping off slightly at Location Four, but resuming back to full strength at Location Five.

Moving to the 40 MHz channel width, we find the Buffalo and D-Link providing similar range.

The Buffalo seemed to excel above previous testing solutions at the 5 GHz band.

5 GHz 40 MHz again shows the Buffalo with the best range across tested devices.

5 GHz 80 MHz increased range through the first three locations. In Locations Four and Five, the Buffalo stays right with the Amped Wireless.
