Best for WAP Hardware Wired
So far throughput speed on the TL-ER6120 seems a bit faster. I'll have to contact TP-LINK engineers to see what's in one. There is no reference to what's inside except for the memory and buffering. The ESR600H is really quick though on the WiFi side even on 802.11g in a mix mode. Time will tell on that one when I run it through the paces here.
Poor wireless performance
As a wireless router, the ESR9855G doesn't have much to recommend it. If you're just interested in wired performance, it's one of the few newer routers that has Ubicom's auto-QoS. But if you want Ubicom-based, you'd be better off with D-Link's DIR-657, which has equally, uh, poor wireless performance, is a bit cheaper and can pump the ol' bits at over 300 Mbps up and down. Or there is always D-Link's old mainstay DIR-655, which I'm sure you save even more on, especially if you buy refurbished.
Stable Downlink Throughput
Judging by its aesthetics alone, the humble EnGenius ESR9855G isn't as attractive as some of its competitors' prettier 802.11n rivals. Furthermore, this EnGenius wireless router has a number of inadequacies such as a missing USB port and dual-band functionality. These aren't life-saving features, but they're nonetheless important if you require a router for network printing or sharing of USB storage devices.
