Speed Test hyperWrt (WDS) vs Alchemy (client Mode)

    I'm trying to decide between these two methods to use for my new WRT54G. I am trying to connect 2 devices to my WRT54G and have this WRT54G connect to the internet via a WAG54G.

    I therefore cannot use the client mode on hyperWrt (only allows 1 attached device) unless someone knows how to allow client mode to accept multiple devices...........

    I must therefore must decide on one of these two options.

    Or any other idea someone might have???

    My main question is which one will be faster????

    I want the highest speed/throughput option

    All input is appreciated

    Why not use client mode for HyperWRT? That's what I'm doing.

    Comparing HyperWRT client mode vs Alchemy client mode...

    Used a ping of 60000 bytes

    Alchemy - 92ms average
    HyperWRT - 47ms and never goes higher or lower

    Client mode only allows 1 device attached to it..... otherwise i would.....

    I'm sure you can use more than one. You might need to set IP addresses connected to it manually however

    Well from my experience as soon as you plug the second device in, the whole setup freezes....

    I use only static IP's and every device is set properly...

    You should try it Matt, maybe there is something im missing

    With the hyperwrt i had 3mb/s wireless with alchemy i never passed the 2.4 mb/s.


    does annyone knows how to configure hyperwrt for best wireless speeds?
    and does somebody know witch is faster the eu driver for the wpc or the vs?

    Top speeds actually don't need much tweaking. You can change some advanced wireless settings.

    To test, using the run command, type "ping -l 60000 -n 100 [ROUTER AP IP ADDRESS]"

    Whatever speed gives you the lowest ping is your fastest.

    54G is a (slight) con, as the maximum I ever get for best performance is 36 Mbps

    You can set send and receive to the same antenna. The performance gain you get from these is minimal with the HyperWRT. It's already a most excellent firmware for performance and reliability
