Routing Performance

To test out the HS-100W's LAN performance, I used this Qcheck-based procedure described here. The 7 - 10Mbps throughput in the table below is adequate for most U.S. broadband connections, but not enough for the speedier connections found in less broadband-challenged countries.

NOTE!NOTE: Machines used for routing and wireless performance testing were:

LAN and Wireless - HP Pavillion ze4300 laptop with AMD Mobile 2600, 500MB DDR 2100 RAM running Windows XP

WAN - DELL PowerEdge 2650 with Intel XEON 3.2GHz, 1GByte DDR RAM running Windows XP
