TP-Link Archer C2 AC750 Wireless Router & Archer T4U AC1200 USB WiFi-Adapter

Methodology

 

The testing methodology is the same for all routers, regardless if they are compact or standard so as to compare as good as we can between different brands and router models. After a careful analysis I’ve realised that there are two essential elements to pay attention to when it comes to the performance of a wireless router: signal strength measured in decibels, and the speed achieved, measured in MB/s.

For the first test, the one regarding range, I have set a fix point in a room for the router and proceeded with three measurements at different distances in order to determine the decibels level. And since replicability is one of the most important factors for us, considering that we will be testing more routers, from different manufacturers and with different specifications, we will test its range from a fixed router position and also a fixed position of the 3 measurement points (P1 – 1m; P2 – 10m; P3 – 20m).

The building where we made the measurements is made out of bricks and concrete, with spread out sandwich-type metallic structures.

      1. chamith – look in the users manual and find the ip for configuring the router (something like http://192.212.xxx.xxx). Enter that address in your browser, use the credentials “admin” “admin” and set up your router
