LAN & WAN Reviews

Features and design are nice, but how do these routers stack up against one another in terms of real-world performance? In order to test how the routers performed under different situations, we ran each of them through our standard router tests. The graphs below summarize our findings.

As noted earlier, Airlink101's use of the Amlogic AMRISC 9041 processor puts it ahead of all the others in upload and download speeds, and ties for maximum simultaneous connections, making it the clear performance winner.

The rest of the routers offer respectable speeds, while the EBR-2310 and the USR8004 slug it out for possession of the cellar. You can also check our router charts to see how members of this round-up compare to a wide array of other routers.
