    So I set up a fiddler proxy on my PC which is connected to my lan via 1Gbit wired.
    Loaded up a simple file server on my PC.
    Configured the Switch to use the fiddler proxy on my PC
    The Switch is connected via WiFi.

    I then added a redirect to my file server and voila! As you can see, downloading a 1.5GB file onto the switch results in a transfer speed of 89MB/s which is the speed that my SDCard is rated at - Samsung PRO+ UHS3 90MB/s.

    Although I'm not sure if it's using the SDCard or the eMMC NAND but either way it's blazingly fast!

    Yeah, I'm not surprised it's a soft speed cap that can be bypassed in some ways. Probably just to avoid sucking up too much bandwidth unnecessarily.

    802.11ac is the answer. It's a beast wireless.
    Also going to a localserver of course helps.

    Basically when we get some sort of exploit on the switch we can dump the entire nand in about 6 minutes. Far cry from the 30++ minutes it takes on my 3DS.. Giggity.
    from what? the connection test on the switch?

    For the download it grabs a 30MB file. I noticed that while using the proxy. Technically if you have a fast enough connection the file will complete before you can even measure the speed, which is why I used a 1.5GB file.

    Yes I wanted to test the potential of the wireless controller. There has been so much misinformation spread around I had to see for myself. I am quite satisfied.

    I wonder why it drops as soon as it goes outside the network. I mean the browser isn't officially released so that might be a reason why? or something?

    the cable modem already has it's own built in wifi i can't change it and it's not 802.11ac

    i changed my routers mtu to 1500 it actually made it worse now it's dropped to 12 Mbps..

    There are ways around that. I also have an ISP provided gateway modem/router, bonded T2200H, I just logged into it and "bridged" it thus rendering it a pure modem, then connected it to my 802.11ac 3x3 router. You can do that with most gateways.

    I do not have fiber in my area yet dammit so had to settle for the dual adsl bond.

    Well I got fiber, 100/100 so if you find anything good, I can help you test out and see if we can max my line, or atleast close to it.

    it's a shit Netgear CG3000v2 and it limits both wifi and lan to 20 Mbps even my kodi box can't go above 20 Mbps the only time i get the max speed which is around 90 Mbps is through this computer

    I got 50MBPS download speed on wifi, it downloads eshop games fast. Is not like we need more, we're not streaming 4K videos at 60FPS or anything. :P

    Though i kinda am disappointed no kind of media streaming service exist, or even just video/music playback. :wtf:
