Wireless Range

 

Our next test for this new setup is seeing 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.

The Synology RT2600ac has been our best AC2600 class router all year long and the DIR-882 puts that to the test holding solid 2.4GHz performance from 10 through 30ft. As you can see in the chart the 882 started at 117Mbps and ends at 102Mbps, 2Mbps slower than the Synology.

For 5GHz the ASUS ROG Rapture has been the best at carrying its performance over distance while the Amped Titan has been the solution to lose the most performance from 10 to 30ft. The 882 doesn't fall into either category but rather is quite stable with its performance, starting at 362Mbps and ending at 357Mbps.

 

 

File Performance

We did test storage performance on the 882 and came away with 29 MB/s read and 33 MB/s write.
