Ac5300, Is my router performing good?

Hi


I’ve just bought a new ac5300 router. I made some benchmarks and I don’t know if they are good results or not.

Two wireless devices (1330Mb/s and 866Mb/s link speeds of each one) and a wired one at 1Gb/s.

w1 (link speed 1300Mbps, 1 meter from router) -> LAN : 796Mb/s
w2 (link speed 866Mbps, 1 meter from router) -> LAN : 450Mb/s
w1 (link speed 1300Mbps, 1 meter from router) -> w2 (link speed 866Mbps, 1 meter from router) -> 112Mbs

On wireless to lan, I obtain the half of the link speed.
On wireless to wireless I obtain (I think) a very poor speed (112mbs).

Are those values good?


Thank you!!

Lan Device is a mac mini with ubuntu (4gb and SSD).

Testing two devices by lan with iperf3, I obtain 940mbit/s (mac mini and macbook pro). I think I should give at least 940mbits/s on Wireless to Lan.

The other issue, I only obtain 112mbs/s on w1 to w2.

Ok, thanks for the info.

I am not the expert so I can only give advice based on my experience with an ASUS RT-AC88U. The fastest transfer rate via wireless was ~ 98MBps or 784Mbps.

The fastest transfer rate wired (w/ enterprise grade 1Gbe NICs switches etc.) is 118MBps or 944Mbps. When I tested transfer rates through the RT-AC88U it was slower. So I don't think you will see 117MBps or 940Mbps from 802.11 AC routers/client devices.

I can't help with the w1 to w2 transfer, I have no experience with that use case.

Also, I don't use iperf3 for testing, I use a compressed .mpg file for best case scenarios.

I hope you are not confusing the unit abbreviations:

m = milli (x0.001)
M = Mega (x1,000,000)

b = bits
B = Bytes
