The reason for all this is that with the increasing use of wireless, attached to higher speeds courtesy of your ISP, people expect the same speeds for their bucks.They don’t care, or don’t know, why it would be different. To be fair, wireless has never been punted as a Very High Speed Medium (VHSM).Personally, I would only use it for general browsing and downloading and if you look at most companies, wireless is an add-on to the network, not a core function. So now we know how the test was performed, what were the results like? See below:
I’m going to get a N router (and N adaptor) and do the same tests but I bet I get nowhere near the advertised 300-600Mb/sec. Think about it-you can make such outlandish claims but until you get a home connection that can supply you with VHSM , how do you test it? And even within the home environment, 15-20Mb/sec will quite happily stream HD video (this seems to be the litmus test at the moment) so why do you need N type? Sorry, I digress, the whole point is if you want a high speed home LAN network that doesn’t suffer from interference, that does what it says and gives you a constant and reliable service, don’t choose wireless.Get Ethernet.
