Link Speed by Location


Link Speed by Location offers valuable insight into the working throughput of the router at specific locations.




At the 2.4GHz 20MHz band, the REA20 had an excellent connection rate through the first four locations, dropping off to 130Mbps at location five.




Moving to 40MHz, we find the REA20 keeping a steady 300Mbps connection rate through the first three locations, and dropping to 270Mbps for locations four and five.




The 5GHz 20MHz band has our connections rate just shy of 180Mbps for the first two locations, and dropping to 144Mbps at location three and 37Mbps at four; however, the REA20 bounces back at location five, offering an 180Mbps rate.




Using the 40MHz channel width, the REA20 connected at 400Mbps for the first two locations, and 144Mbps for the third. The fourth location managed 37Mbps, but bounced back at location five with a 400Mbps rate.




Firing up the 5GHz 80MHz band, we connect to the REA20 at an impressive 867 Mbps within locations one and two. Moving out, we connect at 300 Mbps at location three, and 90 Mbps at location 4.
