Wireless Range

 

Our next test for this new setup sees how range affects performance. With this, we start at 10Ft and move out to 30Ft. Routers are tested in their default configuration for this part; the client device is the Alienware 15 R3 with the Killer Networks 1535.

The WRT32x started off the range test at 97 Mbps and finished at 99.92 Mbps, holding steady performance throughout.

5GHz started at 535 Mbps, and at 20Ft, we saw a small drop to 518 Mbps. At 30ft, we finished up with 503 Mbps.

Last, we have the sessions test which was a decent showing for the WRT32x. We started at 916Mbps with 32 sessions, at 128 sessions we saw performance around 837 Mbps, and at 512 sessions, we saw 509 Mbps.
