Wireless Performance - 2.4 GHz Two Stream

For competitive comparison, I again chose the D-Link DIR-665 and TRENDnet TEW-692GR. Figure 2 shows the wireless Performance Table for 2.4 GHz. The abnormally low Location A downlink throughputs are gone. But some of the Location D uplink results are lower than before. You can bring up the original review table to compare if you like.

Figure 3's IxChariot plots summary clearly shows no sign of the very unstable caused by the third-antennaless Intel 5300. But I've seen other products with lower variation and fewer large throughput dropouts.
