securing wireless will it slow the network down


Recommended Posts

I ran some test back in the day using a program called iperf.  There was a slight difference in an extended test.(over 1Gb of data)  In a three minute test which came out to about 300mb or so there was so little difference between WEP/WPA and nothing at all. 

This was all done with one client on the router at a time.  So if you have multiple clients on the router, as most routers only have enough processing power for about 10-15 clients anyways, you may see a slight slow down and/or increased lag.

I will post the spread sheet that I have when I get back to my apartment.
