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, the AirStation came in at 144 mbps in the first three locations; connection rate drops to 130 mbps in the last two locations.

Moving to 40 MHz, the Buffalo mirrored the D-Link in connection rates across all locations.
