With my WRT1900ACv1 and Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 I haven't been able (with various builds) to get over 100 Mbps. That is frustrating for me because i have a 200 Mbps from ISP and furthermore i'm transferring large files over my LAN.

So I'm thinking about getting a WRT1900ACS if it increases my wireless speed.

Please, share with me your WRT1900ACS real speeds (internet and LAN) and which build You are using.

Thanks

My ISP bandwidth is capped at around ~80 Mbps, but I'm consistent speed test say my max is 90 Mbps.

On my WRT1900ACS with DD-WRT v3.0-r30016 std (06/24/16) I experimented with different channels, and the best I got was TX / DX Rate around 585M reported by DD-WRT in the Wireless status tab (using 802.11ac only mode, VHT-80). My signal level is around 66% (next room through the wall). My Intel 7260 card is 2x2 (ac), so it's a limitation as well.


I used iperf3 between two computers to measure useful throughput (one connected to the router with cat6 cable, and another with that WiFi card above). iperf3 results are around 250 - 330 Mbit/s. Actual useful throughput is always roughly around 50% - 60% of the full channel, since there is overhead on WiFi and TCP/IP, so that was expected. That's so far the best I got. When channel is set to auto, results are worse, as well as other channels selected manually.

I suppose getting 3x3 card should improve things, but Intel didn't make one, and it's probably the best 802.11ac with Linux support, that's why I'm using it.
