Evaluation / measurement of Huawei glory route premium ws831

老师 28

Huawei glory route ac1200m series, the difference between different models, I think it is about the following:

Glory route X1 enhanced version, which should be the full crab chip scheme of ws831, that is, CPU is also crab chip (rtl8197), and there is no USB interface. If the CPU of X1 enhanced version is replaced by Huawei's own Hisilicon dual core 1g, and a USB port is added, it becomes Huawei glory route ws831 For Standard Version, if you spray the standard version of ws831 with black and send a flat network cable to you, it will become the honor route premium version to be evaluated. If you supplement the power amplifier chip and four LAN ports on the honor route premium version, plus a crab's Gigabit switch chip, it will become the honor route pro.

The power supply of ws831 is 5V 2A. If the power supply is broken or lost, do not plug in the 12V power supply of other routers. It may burn the circuit. I dare not try. In terms of interface, there are only two LAN ports, one WAN port and one USB2.0 interface. If there is a requirement for the number of LAN ports, this one is not suitable.

Because of the USB interface. So test the reading and writing speed of USB2.0 interface of ws831.

The wireless card used in the test is ASUS pce-ac88 dual frequency AC3100 low radiation wireless PCI-E card

1、 The test of wired and wireless reading speed of USB port

File sharing: after opening the file sharing service, you can access the data in the USB storage device safely and conveniently by accessing the network sharing directory.

For example, enter "" (Windows user) or "SMB: / /" (MAC OS user) in the browser address bar or explorer, where "" is the LAN IP address of the router, and windows user can download the hard disk assistant.

The above is the instructions for routing USB. Only SMB does not have FTP, but this 100m LAN port and SMB protocol are enough. It's more convenient than Xiaomi to see the glorious USB device in my network neighborhood, even though I set ws831 to "switch mode". I use 1TB mobile hard disk for testing. Most people connect to the mobile hard disk.

The test results are as follows:


Isn't it a dual core 1g Processor. How about USB? 5g 867m. The speed of reading can't exceed 100 megabytes of network cable. I really shouldn't have. When I dial out the USB interface, I feel it is very hot. This router firmware is equipped with thunderbolt download Plug-in, but the download speed will not be high. The thunderbolt download speed of glory Pro has been measured before, and the speed is very unstable, sometimes 0, sometimes only more than 2MB. If you like the glory router, you should be able to accept its shortcomings.

The following is the description of thunderbolt remote download of glory Router:


2、 Test the wireless limit transmission speed of ws831.

For the wireless router ws831 with 100m port, there is no need to test the wireless transmission speed. Because the limit value is limited by the speed limit of 100m, it is impossible to exceed the theoretical value of 12.5mb/s. The actual measurement is as follows:

2.4g speed
2.4G speed 300mbps, downlink speed 11.2mb/s, uplink speed 11mb / s. Very general.
5g speed

g rate is not stable. Maybe it's too close, but I don't think many other routers have such a serious unstable speed. Sometimes it even reaches 433M. The measured wireless transmission speed is the same as the main 2.4G speed.

Originally, I would like to use the router's wireless relay 5g to measure the wireless transmission speed, so as to break through the limit of 100m speed. Unfortunately. Unfortunately, Huawei's router does not support 5g as wireless relay, only 2.4G. OK, let's take a test, too. But the test results will not be sent out, because the same speed as above is about 11mb. The result is very incomprehensible. If you are interested, you can look for the wireless transmission rate data of this station after the wireless relay of fesun K2.

By the way, a wireless relay of ws831 adopts the "LAN port mode", that is, the router IP after the relay and the superior route are in the same LAN, which is better, benefiting from the device sharing and mutual access in the LAN. It will automatically turn off DHCP and change the IP address of the router without any change. The 2.4G name will be the same as the parent route, and the password will be the same. 5g wireless name is 2.4G name followed by "_5g". Simple automatic wireless relay settings. But after the relay works, it doesn't tell you what the IP address of ws831's router LAN port is. You need to use mobile wifi analyzer to check the LAN device or superior route to check its connected device to find out the IP address. Not right.

When testing the wireless transmission speed, by the way, I looked at its power, which is 3.4W in standby mode, 5.2w in 2.4G full speed operation, and 4.8w in 5g high-speed transmission operation.

3、 Wireless signal strength test of glory route ws831

To test the wireless signal strength, we must add another router for comparison. It's fisun K2, right. It's K2 again.

Put Huawei ws831 and fisun K2 in the WiFi position in the figure, and test the wireless signal strength of positions a, B, C and D. WiFi is on the second floor and D point is on the first floor.


Here, I'll try a new typesetting method, put the speed measurement and signal comparison on the same picture, and read some in this way. Again, the ultimate goal of WiFi is speed and stability, not just signal strength. Xiaomi 5 mobile phone is used for speed measurement. The software is the Speedtest mobile app that many friends are using. The broadband is 100m. Because of the 100m speed limit of the port, the network speed will not exceed 100m. Measure the speed 6 times respectively, take the average value as the comparison value, and the data will be listed for reference.

The test results are as follows:

    The figure above shows the position of point a, and the signal strength difference is obvious. The WiFi signal of fisun K2 is better than that of Huawei ws831. As for the speed measurement at point a, the 2.4G network speed of fesun K2 is faster than that of ws831, and the 5g network speed is similar.
       The figure above shows the location of point B, the result is similar to point a, but the 2.4G performance of ws831 is really poor, which is much slower than that of fexcel K2. 5g is about the same.
      At point C above, the wireless signal is still strong at 2.4G of Fex K2, and the network speed of 2.4G is still fast at K2. 5g of both can be achieved, but when measuring the speed, the WiFi connection will be disconnected, so there is no speed measurement data. All are 0, the 5g signal ability of Xiaomi 5 is weak.

Above is point D, the location downstairs. Both 5g WiFi can't be connected. Although the WiFi name can be seen in the mobile wifi list, it can't be connected, so it's all represented by a fork. On the 2.4G signal, the difference between the two is not big, and the wireless intensity is very similar. However, the average value of the two is almost the same when the real network speed is measured. It seems that glory router's PCB antenna is conducive to the coverage between the upper and lower floors.

Mobile phones can't measure the speed of their 5g WiFi, and they are reluctant to do so. Then use a desktop computer to measure the speed. The receiving ability of the wireless network card of the desktop is better than that of the WiFi of the mobile phone. The LAN file transmission test is carried out with Asustek pce-ac88 wireless network card at 2.4G and 5g respectively, and the results are as follows:



It can be seen from the figure that the connection speed of 2.4G is a little higher than K2, but the downlink speed is a little higher than ws831, and the uplink speed is twice as fast as K2. In 5g, K2 has a high connection speed of 325m, ws831 is only 195m, and love is limited to the 100m network port of K2, otherwise, the speed is more than 11mb / s, and the up and down speeds of fesun K2 5g are more than 11mb / s.

However, the connection speed is dynamic, so the transmission speed is representative.

4、 Summary:

Huawei's glorious route premium version ws831, 2.4G signal is very common, even poor. During the speed measurement, 2.4G will be disconnected and 5g will be connected. The 5g performance of ws831 is fairly good. The only advantage is its USB interface, although the speed is not high, which is similar to the speed of Xiaomi route 3, it can also download quickly. Although the download speed is not high, it is better than nothing.
