Starting with our range testing, the 86U in orange did quite well at 94Mbps at 10Ft. Moving out to 20Ft we have 87Mbps and 30Ft 83Mbps.
With 5GHz, we start at 559Mbps at 10Ft and moving out to 30Ft very little drop in performance ending at 540Mbps.
File Transfer and Session Throughput
For file transfer testing, I use my SanDisk Extreme Pro USB 3.0 flash drive. Its formatted with the exFAT file system. The 86U was the 5th quickest solution in our modern charts coming in at 87 MB/s read and 78 MB/s write.
Looking at this chart, the 86U in orange was among the best routers I have seen at handling large amounts of connections. We started with 932Mbps with 32 pairs and all the way out to 256 we lost very little throughput. We ended testing at 512 connections at 707Mbps seconds to the AC-1900p by 4Mbps.
