Tyler's Router Test System Specifications




Wired Throughput


The Tenda AC9 was the last router I tested with the old Z170 platform. With our new test system, we re-ran it through testing to have it on our new charts.





The Athena R2 did quite well in LAN throughput bringing in 936 Mbps.




WAN throughput came in at 942 Mbps.



Mobile and Desktop Wireless Throughput




2.4GHz performance topped 484 Mbps, making it the quickest solution so far. 5GHz performance was admirable at 832 Mbps, second to the Synology device.




Mobile throughput proved decent for the Athena R2. I could bring in 86.7 Mbps with my iPhone and 62 Mbps with my Android solution.




5GHz mobile throughput showed 538 Mbps for the Athena R2 on my iPhone and 322 Mbps for Android.
