The only test that means anything is to use netperf or iperf and measure the
throughput on TX and RX. You must, however, do those transfers to a second
computer on your local network, with the second machine connected to the router
by a wired connection. Any tests run through the Internet such as speedtest.net
will only measure the speed of your broadband connection which is a lot slower
than almost any wireless link.
