Now that we have three AC2350 routers in the Router Charts database, throughput vs. attenuation profile comparison with the ASUS RT-AC87U/R and NETGEAR R7500 is a bit more interesting.

All three products start out equally in the 2.4 GHz downlink profile. But the ASUS clearly stays above the other two as attenuation increases (signal level decreases).

The 2.4 GHz uplink plot shows a tighter spread among the three products. The Linksys tracks about midway between the other two products throughput most of the tested range.

2.4 GHz Uplink Throughput vs. Attenuation

The 5 GHz downlink profile shows the Linksys doing a bit better than the ASUS at the lower attenuation values. The bigger deal is that the E8350 didn't break connection until 42 dB, which is a first for any product tested with the Version 8 process.

5 GHz Downlink Throughput vs. Attenuation

The 5 GHz uplink story is a bit different. This time the Linksys starts out significantly above the other two products, but then crosses below the ASUS about midway through the test. The Linksys again, however, hold the connection the longest, disconnecting again at 42 dB.
