Benchmarks - Wired Throughput
LAN-to-LAN throughput landed the TEW-828DRU on par with most solutions in our chart. Comparing it to other AC3200 solutions, it was slightly quicker than the Linksys solution, and nearly identical to the Netgear device.
WAN to LAN throughput reached a peak of 917 Mbps, similar to what we found with the Linksys solution.
Benchmarks - Wireless Throughput
Moving over to wireless throughput, both the 20MHz and 40MHz channels had the TRENDnet TEW-828DRU leading the pack within AC3200 solutions. With 20MHz, the router reached 124 Mbps, while 40MHz produced 227 Mbps.
5GHz performance was a bit up and down. With the 20MHz band, we reached 42 Mbps, while the 40MHz band picked up quite a bit landing at 215 Mbps. The 80MHz band was a bit of an underperformer as we found no way within the firmware to force the router to stay at 80Mhz. With that said, we did reach 307 Mbps during testing.
