Benchmarks - Wired Throughput

Kicking off our testing was our LAN to LAN throughput testing. As seen above, when compared to other AC1750 solutions the Arris did come up a bit short in this department. At 743 Mbps, its switching throughput is about 100 Mbps under the next solution.

WAN to LAN took a slight hit as well coming in at 717 Mbps.

2.4GHz throughput was rather impressive for the Surfboard as it was able to keep up with the 1750DHP from Buffalo. 20MHz came in at 118 Mbps while 40MHz reached 187 Mbps.

Testing the 5GHz band, we start with 80MHz performance reaching 374 Mbps while 20 and 40MHz band came in at 167 Mbps and 238 Mbps, respectively.

To show more real-world capabilities of wireless routers, I have begun testing throughput with multiple clients. With the 2.4GHz band, the Arris peaked at 249 Mbps with four users.

The 5GHz band was the opposite as it peaked with a single user at 374 Mbps and four users at 248 Mbps.
