The Test Method selector shows the test method used for the products shown.I think its great to provide clarity on the number of streams used in the testing. I am confused thought about the results provided for the version 9 Router Charts. Have all the routers listed now been tested using the revision 9 technique?

I am considering adding a class or streams filter for the Charts.
Your understanding is correct.My understanding is that revision 9 already tests everything using a 2x2 client. Is that incorrect, or are you thinking of adding a streams filter for older test methods?
One of the main reasons we changed the method was to see if more expensive routers really do help improve performance.I definitely like this way of comparing. Considering that the client is using a 2x2 antenna, one thing that's surprising is that many of the 4x4 routers do better than the 3x3 routers, even among the same brand of products. What's the reason for this?
There is no wireless "Revision 3" test method. I think you are comparing results from Test Method 8 and 9.
The test client in Revision 8 was a 3x3 NETGEAR R7000 in bridge mode. The Revision 9 client is a 2x2 Intel AC 8265.
Yes, of course.
The Wi-Fi class system has outlived its usefulness.
