Results - 5 GHz
Figure 4 compares the total (up and downlink) throughput in all test locations in the 5 GHz band. You'll note that only Locations A - D are shown, because none of the adapters were able to run the test from Locations E and F.
Note also the missing data for the Cisco-Linksys WUSB600N v2 in Location D. The adapter was able to associate with the router. But the connection wasn't fast or stable enough to successfully run the test.
Figure 4: Total Throughput - 5 GHz band
The little Intel 5300 distinguishes itself with consistently high performance in all Locations.
Figure 5 shows the uplink throughput in all test locations in the 5 GHz band. The Intel 5300 and NETGEAR WNHDE111 stay in the top positions across all test locations, while the D-Link DAPs move up toward the top.

Figure 6 shows the downlink throughput in all test locations in the 5 GHz band. Again, the Intel and NETGEAR stay in the top positions but the D-Link DAPs drop down to the bottom.
