Bandwidth of AP68 Vs AP92

We have currently deployed our network with both AP68 and AP92. Both the AP types are in same AP Group and working perfectly fine. But during testing when i performed downloading from AP68, the downloading speed was around 20Mbps. I replaced these AP68 with AP92, keeping the configuration same. The downloading speed has raised from 20Mpbs to 35Mbps. I shall be thankful if some one guide me the behavours of both AP's. Why it is like that.

Thanks & Regards

The AP92 definitely performs better than the AP68, and it is priced that way.

Definitely Prices are reason. but there must be some technical reason behind the price and performance. Actually I'm trying to convince management to buy AP92 instead on AP68 for next building.. that is why i need to present the comparison to them.

AP92 is MUCH better for capacity.  If you know you also have dual-band clients, you should try to go for the AP105

Re: Bandwidth of AP68 Vs AP92

I think the reason here is because AP 68 got a 10/100 port  and AP 92 got a giga port

Which mean that AP 68 will just go up to 100.... and thats why you get better throughput from AP92

The AP68 only supports 1x1 mimo:  That matches what low-power handsets and cellphones support.  That type of support would probably not be adequate for laptops, especially when combined with handsets in a world of increasing dependence on WLAN.
