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 iPhone 7 Plus.

2.4GHz range was pretty solid through 30ft. We started with 91 Mbps at 10Ft, moved to 90 and 20ft, and finished with 90 Mbps at 30Ft.

The 5GHz band starts at 514 Mbps at 10Ft, moving out to 20Ft we hold much of that throughput at 498 Mbps. At 30Ft, we finish things up at 434 Mbps.

 

 

Sessions

The Lyra did amazingly well in our sessions test and as you can see in the chart above ended right in the middle between the best and worst routers we have tested.

 

For this test, we started at 932 Mbps and at the halfway point were down to 900 Mbps. We finished this test up with the Lyra still holding on at 620 Mbps.
