- +Teklager.se did a [[https://​teklager.se/​en/​knowledge-base/​compex-wle200nx-wle600vx-benchmark/​|Benchmark]] of two Compex wireless cards on pfSense and OpenWrt on an APU2C4Quote from the article: //​OpenWRT ​is just much better at wireless. It outperforms pfSense by almost 2x.//
-This benchmark ​is done with the generic x86 BB image (no SMP, i686) One laptop ​is attached to eth0, and runs iperf towards a second laptop attached to eth1.+
