Summary of Test Results

If you've made it this far, you deserve a summary to pull the essential information from all those charts and graphs! Here's a table similar to the one I created for the Linksys SRX review.

Summary of RangeMax Test Results
The Test The Result Comment
Speed vs. Range compared to standard 11g Performed better than Broadcom-based standard 11g
Speed vs. Range compared to True MIMO About the same in indoor tests. Not as good as True MIMO on outdoor tests
Performance with mixed RangeMax / 11g STAs 11g STAs suffer significantly reduced throughput for Broadcom-based STA tested.
Performance with mixed RangeMax / True MIMO STAs Very even bandwidth sharing in both uplink and downlink. But close-range True MIMO STAs can cause high throughput variation in both STAs.
Performance with mixed RangeMax / 11b STAs Significantly reduced 11b throughput for uplink, better for downlink. But active 11b STA causes high throughput variation for active RangeMax STA
Performance improvement when RangeMax client used with 11g APs If you're using standard 11g gear, you may see some improvement, but little if upgrading from Super-G stuff.
Performance improvement when RangeMax AP used with 11g STAs Some improvement for downlink, but with high throughput variation
Key:  = Good         = Mixed results         = Poor
