Test Methods and Equipment

Unfortunately, I couldn’t test the router together with Trendnet’s wireless card because my sample of the TEW-621PC proved to be defective. It wouldn’t appear on the notebook’s device list. So I had to use a third-party card instead. I chose a Linksys WPC300N v.2 which is based on the Atheros xspaN chipset, just like the TEW-621PC.

Here is a list of the equipment and software I used for my tests:

  • Two Category 5e Ethernet cables
  • Intel Centrino notebook
  • Linksys WPC300N v.2 PC-card
  • D-Link DWA-552
  • PC based on a mainboard with an integrated Gigabit Ethernet controller
  • IxChariot (High_Performance_Throughput and Throughtput scenario)

Performance

The router’s speed on the local network is indicative of its peak bandwidth.

LAN-LAN (TEW-633GR):

The three following tests show the bandwidth on the WAN port. The first two tests were performed when the router’s services were disabled, but I enabled StreamEngine, firewall and inbound filter for the third test. All the tests were performed with enabled DMZ.
