Routing performance for the EA2700 using our standard test method and 18.104.22.168982 firmware is summarized in Table 3. The 300 - 400 Mbps routing throughput will be plenty to handle most any home or small office connection. Maximum simultaneous connections are fine and dandy, too, maxing out at our 34,925 session test limit.
Throughput - (Mbps)
|WAN - LAN||341|
|LAN - WAN||412|
|Maximum Simultaneous Connections||34925|
Table 3: Routing throughput comparison
The composite IxChariot plot of the three routing tests below shows nice and steady routing throughput for the most part.

Updated 4/27/2012 - I was initially unable to get the EA2700 to link to the test client using 40 MHz bandwidth mode. But I have since discovered a work-around. Rather than have you click back and forth between reviews, I've moved the Wireless Performance and Closing Thoughts to a retest article.
