Can someone who installed openwrt on their WNDR3700 make some WiFi Throughput (Router<->PC (IPerf) , USB-Storage<->PC) Tests in 2,4 GHz and 5GHz band. I would really appreciate it.
Thank you in advance
Alright, I ran several iperf tests between my laptop (T400 with a Intel 5300 WiFi card running Gentoo) on both the 2.4 GHz band (64 bit WEP encrypted) and 5 GHz band (WPA2-PSK). I consistently saw 15-20 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band, and 32-40 Mbps with the 5 GHz one. The router is running a firmware I built from trunk (r20639), and the network is a fairly busy one with at least 8 devices currently having active DHCP leases. I tested my USB storage speed using NFS over 5 GHz WiFi and consistently saw 20-30 Mbps for both reading and writing. Going over NFS on a 100 Mbps wired link, I saw a peak read speed of 60 Mbps, but couldn't reproduce it. Using scp, I was CPU limited on the router end and never surpassed 15 Mbps. To do a trivial test of write speed, I ssh'ed to the router and ran "time dd if=/dev/zero of=200mfile bs=1024 count=200000" (basically created a 200 MB file filled with zeros), doing so I got roughly 40 Mbps pretty consistently.
Hope this helps.
