Netgear Nighthawk R7000: Speed Tests, 2nd Room


We now move our laptop and 802.11ac Bridge to a second room to take speed measurements. We set up exactly 23-feet away from our router testbed.  Let’s see how are speeds are when we back up a bit.


Benchmark Results: So a funny thing happened when we increased the distance to our Netgear Nighthawk R7000…Our throughput speeds actually increased!  At a distance of 23-feet away, the R7000′s average speeds now topped 470Mbps almost 35% faster than that of the R6300.



Benchmark Results: When we test our routers using the larger data packets, we get a bit more of the same.  The Netgear R7000 still dominates with Average Read speeds that top 500Mbps. Not only does this mean you will be able to stream your High-Definition content to your phone or computer, you will be able to host the same  movie to 5-6 of your friends simultaneously.

    I noticed under the specs-} Security section of the review it states it has WEP capable encryption; this is not true. Does not support WEP.

    Is this router wall mountable?

      From Pg. 2: “You do have the ability to mount the router vertically on the
      wall, but Netgear doesn’t provide any sort of desk stand for vertical
      placing on your desk.”
