Routing Performance

NOTE!Testing Notes:
All tests were run with LAN endpoint in DMZ

Though slower than many of the router's I've recently tested, I doubt the 2900G's 16Mbps routing speed would give many buyers pause.

I was pleased that I didn't have any problem running Qcheck's UDP streaming tests in either WAN-LAN or LAN-WAN directions, and even with all the 2900G's DoS features enabled. This is sometimes a problem in NAT+SPI routers, but apparently not in this one.
