    That test setup looks expensive, how could you afford it? :cool:

    Octoscope has generously provided the system on loan.

    Sounds great :) That's really nice of them.

    When will we see test results with Revision 10. It looks promising.

    Hi Thiggins,
    May I ask a several question for Revision 10:
    1.According to your article , we know that v10 have replaced the Client M600 to PALs. If we try to used NETGEAR R7800 switch to client mode to instead the PALs setting , is that available? (NOTE: R7800 got the same solution with PALs)

    2. According to How We Test: SmallNetBuilder's Wireless Testbed - Revision 10 ,paragraph "Computer", which said "we've reassigned the two Dell Optiplex SFF machines to wired router test duties ", what's that supposed to mean? That is, You set two Dell PCs for server (same subnet ex. Server1: 192.168.15.7 , Server2: 192.168.15.8), and connected to correspond ip address (like 192.168.15.7 to 192.168.15.9 ) ? Please let us clarify the setting if there has a block diagram, thanks.

    thanks,

    I'm unclear on your question. Our standard test client is now octoScope's Pal device. You can use anything you want as a client device. But your results will not correlate with ours.

    Wired router test process is described separately.
