Best Case Throughput, Continued
The Netgear RangeMax Next Gigabit Edition pair also made it into the 100 Mbps total throughput club, but just barely at 100.2 Mbps. The Marvell TopDog based products also displayed much higher throughput variation than the Broadcom Intensi-fi-based products.

Finally, I ran the RangeMax 240 product pair, which uses Airgo Gen 3 silicon to see how the results would line up with those I obtained with the open-air measurements I had previously taken.

The results aren't apples-to-apples because the Figure 15 results use newer router firmware and my previous results reflected total downlink throughput to two wired clients instead of a single client upstream / downstream. At any rate, the RangeMax 240 results this time came in at 93 Mbps total average throughput.
