Thread: WAN-LAN throughput speed WL-700gE

  1. #1

    Question WAN-LAN throughput speed WL-700gE

    Does anyone know what the WAN-LAN and/or LAN-WAN throughput speed is of the WL-700gE with the Firewall enabled?
    I'm looking for firewall-router with a fast throughput speed. I normally check Tomsnetworking site for this information but unfortunately nothing can be found.
    The possibilities of the WL-700gE are amazing and the router is certainly an option if the speed is high enough. If not the SL500 or SL1000 could be an option.

    Thanks in advance,

    Basic informations


    With my limit networking knowledge and terminology. I can add this much.

    I recently got a 60 mbit internet connection and was very excited until I discovered that my old belkin router could only "route" a small amount of that speed. I could download and upload with cable thru my ethernet port 7.5 mb/sec and only 1.5 mb/sek thru the belkin router - both ethernet and wireless.

    With the WL700gE I now can download with 6.4 mb/sek thru ethernet and 2.5 mb/sek thru wireless. My wlan adapter in my laptop might cause this difference.

    At least now I can more or less fully exploit my good internetconnection.

    Hopes this answers at least part of your question.

    Throughput speed

    Hi ClaudeX,

    Are you speaking about 6.4 Mbit/s (or Mbyte/s)?

    The "problem" is that I'm able to down- and upload at 25 Mbit/s (I see >> 2 Mbyte/sec when downloading torrents), so I would expect some problems with the WL-700gE.
    The question is... is your router still restricting your WAN-LAN connection?

    My connection is 60 mbit/sek officially equalling approximately the 7.0-7.5 mbyte/sek up- and download speed I observe a when I plug my ethernet directly (without a router). Previously my Belkin router reduced my speed to 1.5 mbyte/sek with LAN and WLAN.
    With WL700gE I experience 6.0-6.5 mbyte/sek with ethernet/lan and 2.5 mbyte/sek with wireless/wlan.
    So yes, the asus wl700ge limits my connection when I go wireless, but at least still better than my old router. At least now I have the option to go wired.
    I am no expert, so I don't know if any settings in wl700ge could improve esp. the wlan speed.

    I am very satisfied with the WAN - LAN throughput. Its much faster than my previous router and basically there is no difference on link speed with or without using Asus router, or max 10-15% overhead. I am using 100mbit WAN connection.
