    Below are the results of our testing. We downloaded a 133.6mb file from a local server at varying distances. The average speeds are recorded in the graph below.

    Below are the points at which the wireless signal would be passing through one or more walls. The number of walls the signal is travelling through follows the range in feet:

    50ft- 1 wall

    100ft- 2 walls

    130ft- 3 walls

    140ft- 4 walls

    150ft- 5 walls

    170ft- 6 walls

    As you can see, the G-220 performed well at close ranges, though diminishing in speed until around the 170 feet mark where reception is completely lost. Though not too shabby an operational range, our test results are contradictory to ZyXELs advertised indoor range of eighty meters, or about 262.5 feet. Keep in mind however, that at 170 feet, the signal was blocked by six walls.
