Testing & Results
To test the performance of the Rosewill RNX-N180UBE Wireless N Adapter, I will be using NetPerf. I will also use the old-fashioned method of transferring files directly from a "server" machine across the network. The server shares a wired connection with the router so there are no bandwidth restrictions or bottlenecking issues from that end.
For the testing setup, I first tested the RNX-N180UBE using a laptop placed in my office, the same room where the router is located. I then moved into my bedroom and tested again. The final tests were conducted using my HTPC in my entertainment center in the living room. Each of the tests was conducted at least five times, but most were conducted many more times than that. The idea behind this was to get the very best results for use. Keep this in mind as you look at the results. They will not likely represent the performance you will experience day and in and day out with the RNX-N180UBE or any other adapter for that matter. The reason I chose not to average the results was that they were widespread and inconsistent based on all those factors we talked about earlier. The only fair way of assessing one adapter against the others is to use the best results.
