Intel Wireless-AC 9260 + Netgear R7800 (X4S)

Recommended Posts

mobilenvidia

Got an Intel Wireless-AC 9260 card last month, these support 160Mhz channel width

Just now grabbed a Netgear R7800 (X4S) 11ac router
Only got them to have a play both were cheap and WIFI is something I like to tinker with

I chose the X4S as it support 160Mhz channel width (well 80+80Mhz)
I should be able to connect at 1733Mbps, will be interesting to see performance at this connection speed

I can get just over 50MB/s at 866Mhz connection speed, to a Netgear R7000 router at 80Mhz channel width
Am hoping to approach 100MB/s

Will have to keep an eye for bottle necks, spindle drive will probably freak
Server with RAID6 array is good for 300GB/s read write
May even come close to maxing out the Gigabit switch
USB3 SSD drive directly in Router should give this a go

There are better, faster, much more expensive Routers, but not much use when can only connect at 1733Mbps

Anyway it will keep me off the streets as the nights get longer and colder
Anything wanted to be tested let me know

I've been using the same R7800 for a while and I love it! I'll be interested to read your experience with it.

You running stock FW or DD_WRT or something else ?
Might give Vox's a go

Been running Tomato by Shibby for a few years on the R7000, but Tomato doesn't support Qualcom CPU's
R7000 has been rock solid since I had it, no need to really replace it, but wanted to test 160Mhz

I'll be back with some results once the router turns up

We seem to be on the same path - my previous was a R7000. Just stock FW here though.

Let the pictures do all the talking

Download as fast as 1GB LAN connection can pump out
Upload a bit slower but still faster than 866Mbps download connection on 8265 I hadI

'll make some comments on the Router when I have a chance

Performance can't be faulted, very impressed with this

Router however, has some issues
Biggest for me, in AP mode USB doesn't seem to work
I save the Server backup to a USB stick in the R7000 running Tomato, easy peasy

The R7000 running Netgear FW in AP mode I can't enable FTP from internet, internal FTP works fine but no use from server getting to USB

The R7800 in AP mode I can set FTP from internet BUT USB is not working or the USB3 stick is not recognised, annoying

Took a few goes to get 1733Mbps connection up, first no wifi was broadcast at all

Quite slow in rebooting, especially Wifi takes ages to come up, 1.7Ghz dual Core CPU but 1Ghz dual core R700o is much faster in boot up

Antenna's a bit naff bit hard to keep tight

I'll try either DD-WRT or Vox FW to see how USB gets on

DD-WRT only thing that seems to work is straight 160Mhz + using 3x upper channels, I can then get a 1.7Gbps connection
But download is about 500Mbps upload 330Mbps, way down on Netgear Firmware

Got FTP working again, forum backup are safe again
Went to Kong build

Can only get 160Mhz to work on channel 128 using 3x upper channels
80+80Mhz seems flawed as it only seems to add 2 more channels
Had kinda expected this to work other way round
