The article discusses the results of the 802.11n interoperability tests conducted on RangeMax Next Wireless Router Gigabit Edition (WNR854T) and RangeMax Next Wireless Notebook Adapter Gigabit Edition (WN511T) manufactured by Neatgear. Both units could not connect at high link rates with draft 11n products that use chip sets from Broadcom or Atheros. The actual throughput performance of WNR854T and WN511T failed to reflect the accelerated connection rate of 270 million bits per second (bps) or 300 million bps. The router firmware has wireless configuration options that allow users to designate whether the network should be tuned for maximum speed or backward compatibility with legacy wireless local area network equipment.
