LAN-to-LAN throughput had the CR700 coming at 936 Mbps, on par with the majority of routers we have tested.

 

Benchmarks - Wireless Throughput

2.4GHz throughput was quite good with the 20MHz band reaching 93.4 Mbps.

 

The 40MHz band wasn't able to be tested since this solution does not let you force or lock it in so with the router in automatic mode it defaults to 20MHz 802.11n.

Testing the 5GHz band, the CR700 was able to produce some pretty nice results. As you can see, the 20MHz band provided 134 Mbps, while 40MHz took the jump to 226 Mbps. 802.11ac and 80MHz cranked in at 395 Mbps.
