D-Link DIR-816L  (Ver.B1) - WiFi Testing

(Read first posting HERE)

I seldom play RealTek SoC toys, more so on custom firmware with 3 digits VLANs, let's see how this toys WiFi performance on some of my laptops & mobile gadgets Cool

The following wifi testing is based on current latest custom firmware "DIR816L_FW200SGb01" (D-Link R&D team is in Singapore)
Initial wireless connection shown as follows, bear in mind this is a non-gigabit budget entry leve DualBand AC750 router ...


All devices were connected simultaneously around 10~15ft distance to the router, wifi speed test was done one after another in order to see the actual throughput performance on each device.


As show on the above, overall 2.4GHz connection rate seem to be average to low (using N-only), whereas the 5GHz (using mix) seem to have better connection rate.
