Routing Performance

I put the AG through our suite of router tests, and the results are shown in Table 1.

Test Description Throughput - (Mbps)
WAN - LAN 201
LAN - WAN 187
Total Simultaneous 192
Firmware Version 1.46
Table 1: Routing throughput

This puts it in second place in our Router Performance Charts, right behind the D-Link DIR-655. Figure 9 shows what the throughput variation looks like on the simultaneous routing test.

But those of you hoping to put the AG into service for BitTorrent or other P2P filesharing will be a bit disappointed with its ability to support simultaneous connections. I was able to reliably achieve only 64 simultaneous (32 up, 32 down) connections. This is much better than the Belkin N1's unusually low 10, but less than the D-Link DIR-655's 120.
