Performance test results

    I have been saying I would do some performance tests with Tomato 1.21 w/speedmod and the ASUS WL-520GU which has the BCM5354 chipset which runs at 240 MHZ.

    To do the test I created 2 networks ( and and did NAT between them using my gigabit switch.

    server ( ---- Tomato router ---- wired client (

    I initiated a sftp transfer from the client to the server. The first test had QOS disabled and all default settings. For the second test I enabled QOS and made sure the sftp traffic was caught by a QOS rule. Then I rebooted the router and ran the test again. The results are below

    WITHOUT QOS, transfer rates were 39-40 megabits/sec

    WITH QOS transfer rates were 30-31 megabits/sec

    Please post speedtests with other hardware.

    I hope other people posts similar tests. It will show us what the available hardware is capable of and can possibly uncover performance issues with different routers.
