Disappointing results, I wonder why I still haven't seen a router based on the promising Quantenna chipset.

I do would love to also see a three stream test added for the new Trendnet TEW-692GR

Quantenna has been focused on application specific markets, such as media bridging.
NETGEAR WNHDB3004 3DHD Wireless Home Theater Networking Kit Review

TEW-692GR review is coming. Don't expect that it will be any / much better since it is Ralink based.

Default chart update?

whilst looking up information on buying a new router, i stumbled upon this awesome
website.

but one small thing.

on this page,
http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/wirel...t-look?start=1

you note that netgear asked to retest the throughput with a (then) new firmware
on the wndr3800, showing drastically improved results.

the new numbers you tested are not shown in the actual review,
http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/wirel...owall=&start=1

OR in the charts,
http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/lanwa.../74-wan-to-lan

any reason why, or just forgot to update?

The retest was for the WNDR4000, not the WNDR3800.

Stevech - how does 3*3 have anything to do with the IP layer? The streams are combined at the PHY... IETF has nothing to do with the PHY, that's IEEE's job...

And, I'm not certain about your second comment about mobility and speed... MIMO is all about multiple paths and combining, and mobility is an area where MIMO is a benefit with STA's that are truely mobile (e.g. not nomadic - fixed in different locations).

Default I do not understand test results

I ask for a simple thing (I do not understand tests results):

if I bridge two 3x3 mimo accesspoints (eventually using dd-wrt or openwrt) can I reach greater speeds than 100mbits (10mbytes) per second?

I hoped to reach 200mbits or greater!

Thanks,
Mario

What do you mean by "bridge"? You cannot connect a client to more than one access point at a time.

Thanks for reply. I mean no clients: two access points that connect each other. So I can bridge two differents wired networks.

You might be able to reach > 100 Mbps if the distance between the two APs is short and there is little traffic from neighbor networks on the channel you are using for the bridge. You would also need to use 40 MHz wide channels, which you should use only in 5 GHz.

Note that you have a better chance of reaching high total throughput for multiple connections. Single connections will probably not reach > 100 Mbps.

Default 3 stream clients?

does anyone know how many or how ubiquitous 3 stream clients are in the market place right now?

also, does 3 stream benefit 2 stream client performance?
