Network Layout

There were no adjustments to Synology RT2600Aac Wireless Router to fine tune ultimate performance settings. All tests were done in the closed/dedicated environment. One CAT 6 cable was connected to the System I from the LAN port of Synology RT2600ac. Testing on System I was done with only 1 network card active; the Killer network card and the corresponding software were disabled for the testing. System II was used with ASUS PCE-AC88 WiFi Adapter. The purpose of using Systems I and II is to show the corresponding speeds between LAN and Wireless connections. Additional testing to the Internet were done from each of the connections from the router.

Software

All testing is done based off of System I and II and Internet.

To test Synology RT2600ac Performance between System I and II I have used LAN Speed Test toolkit. LAN Speed Test is a benchmarking tool which allows testing of upstream and downstream connections. Server software was installed on System I and client software was installed on System II.
