I've been in the process of shutting down my formerly palatial office
for the last year. Business has been break even for the last 2 years.
The only thing that was keeping me there was the lack of any place to
put all the junk at my house in Ben Lomond. Getting sick last year
(multiple kidney stones), and an inconveniently timed pandemic,
interrupted the move. I'm currently about 90% out of the office and
"working" from home. I could easily setup a iperf3 speed test at
home, if I could find the necessary computahs, parts, pieces, etc.
Right now, the workbench is buried in chain saw parts, while the
alternate workbench (formerly known as the dining room table) is
buried in boxes of junk. I consider my desk and computer area to be
sacred ground, not to be tread upon or misused for such mundane tasks
as performance testing. Please setup an iperf3 speed test and learn
how it works so that the next time you buy some wireless gizmo, you'll
have a clue how to test them.
Incidentally, there are a few internet iperf test sites:

No sympathy. When I upgrade a customer, I usually buy or trade for
the old equipment. Most of the stuff is at least 6 years old. I keep
dreaming of buying a Rizen 4000 series system (when they come out) for
gaming. I'm also currently stuck with a 1.2Mbit/sec ADSL internet
which is good enough for YouTube and Netflakes in 720i, but not much
else. Linux and Windoze 10 installs are painfully slow. Incidentally,
when I semi-retire, my working machines will be running Linux Mint
Cinnamon where Windoze 7 and 10 will relegated to running under

up the mess at the house, and take a short vacation from reality.
Good luck with the A6210. I suggest wrapping it in bubble pack so
that it has a chance of passing your drop test. Also, I use and
resell quite a bit of stuff from TP-Link. The stuff looks shoddy, but
generally seems well designed inside. I would buy TP-Link over
Netgear, which has the irritating habit of dying prematurely and often
without any warning. Bulging electrolytic caps and dead power
supplies are still common.
