I use the RE700X as a dedicated service (SSID_EXT) to my 8 client AV system. The 700's 2.4 GHz speed and strength to a client device are easily measured. Compared to the values from my IP router alone, the 700 reduces speed by 12% (505 to 440 Mbps) but increases signal strength by more than 10x (-60 to -48 dBms; negative log scale). With the 700's Gigabit ethernet port connected by cat 8 to the same client, I cannot directly measure speed or strength. But I assume that while both values are limited by the AX3000 specification, they must be greater than the WiFi values. Any comments?
