Our next test for this new setup sees how range affects performance. For this we start at 10ft, within line of sight from the router, we move out to a max distance of 40ft with each 10Ft adding in a wall. The Client device is an iPhone 7 Plus.
Starting off this test, we find solid performance of 113.4 Mbps at 10Ft. Moving out to 20Ft, performance drops slightly to 96M bps, and 30Ft 91 Mbps. At 40ft, we have three walls within our LOS, and the Athena R2 comes in at 74.2 Mbps.
5GHz starts at 504 Mbps at 10Ft, at 20Ft we still have 502 Mbps, and at 30Ft we see our first decline down to 437 Mbps. At the finish, with 40Ft and three walls, the Athena R2 comes in at 301 Mbps.
Storage testing for the Athena R2 was done with the USB 3.0 port and a 128GB SanDisk Extreme Pro flash drive.
Diving into the results, I was very surprised to see the Athena R2 bring in 113 MB/s read in our testing. Write performance wasn't too bad either at 63 MB/s.
