This Chart is for non-routing wireless Access Points. Use the Router Chart for Wireless Routers.
Use the Wireless Adapter / Bridge Chart for those products.

The Charts show results for multiple benchmarks sorted in descending performance order. Use the Select Benchmark dropdown to choose a benchmark.

The benchmark view can be filtered using the Company (shift-click to for multiple companies), Class, Band and Test version filters. Make your selection(s) and click the Filter button to filter the view. Click the Clear button to bring back all products. See this article for an explanation of Wireless Class.

Bar color indicates the test version used for the benchmark. Bar color explanations can be found by clicking the Test Information button found below this box. All test versions are selected by default. Checking box(es) sets a filter to show only products tested with that version.

Important: Only products tested with the same test version are directly comparable, due to differences in test process.

Archived products are hidden by default. Click [Switch to show] to reveal, [Hide them] to hide.
