Wired Throughput




To begin testing, we set up the router for LAN throughput. As you can see above, it didn't really fair too well coming in at 805Mbps.





WAN to LAN came in at 687Mbps, the lowest of any router I have tested.



Wireless Throughput




Switching to wireless throughput, the RT1900ac produced 113 Mbps on the 20MHz band and 146 Mbps on the 40MHz band.




Moving over to 5GHz testing, the Synology unit topped 400 Mbps on the 80MHz band at 418 Mbps, while the 20 and 40MHz bands reached 130 Mbps and 253 Mbps, respectively.



Multi-User Throughput


In our Multi-User test, we use three identical smartphones with the latest MU-MIMO chipset. This test requires the router to handle three simultaneous throughput streams with the results below for each band.




Starting with the 2.4GHz band, the Synology unit was able to produce 118Mbps over all three devices.




Looking at the 5GHz performance, we found the RT1900ac to enable 262 Mbps across all three of our test devices.
