I guess by now a lot of us know that the Belkin RT3200 makes for a great Openwrt device. But I wanted to share this review video on Youtube which specifically talks about SQM performance and more importantly the weak WiFi performance on this device.
Hope this helps with anyone who is thinking about a new Openwrt router or considering the Belkin RT3200 already. Let me know if you have any questions about the WiFi on this router and I am happy to help.
I suggest you update your video to clarify the current WiFi issues only exist in 802.11ax mode. This is likely a driver or config issues and will hopefully be fixed. If you change to 802.11ac mode you will find the 5ft test gets a little slower, but all other tests are much faster.
My own WiFi tests using iperf3 server running on the router show a huge difference between the two modes. I am very happy with the overall WiFi performance.
800 Mbits 10 ft, no walls / line of sight
200 Mbits 20 ft, one wall
80 Mbits 30 ft, two walls & floor (upstairs)
0 Mbits 40 ft, two interior walls, one exterior wall (outside)
600 Mbits 10 ft, no walls / line of sight
500 Mbits 20 ft, one wall
220 Mbits 30 ft, two walls & floor (upstairs)
140 Mbits 40 ft, two interior walls, one exterior wall (outside)
Very interesting and thanks for sharing - I will validate this today and pin a comment on the video and attribute it you.
