Throughput vs. Path Loss - Product Comparison

Most of you will probably be wondering whether to buy the 350N or spring for the dual-band 600N. So to provide a clear view, I limited the comparison throughput vs. path loss plots below to only those products.

The short answer is that the 600N outperforms the 350N in all cases, although the two run neck-and-neck for downlink at stronger signal levels in 40 MHz channel mode.

I should note, however, that performance is close enough that under actual use, you probably wouldn't notice the difference in performance between the 350N and 600N.

Use the Wireless Charts to generate other comparisons.
