Today i got the opportunity to test the throughput on a Zyxel Zywall USG 50. My test environment was the following:
Macbook Pro (gigabit ethernet) – Zyxel Zywall USG 50 – HP Compaq 6000 Pro (gigabit ethernet).

I’ve tested both Lan-Lan, Wan-Lan and Lan-Wan Throughput with the use of Iperf 2.0.5 and Jperf 2.0.2 (who uses Iperf 2.0.5 for mac).

Zyxel Zywall USG 50
Firmware: 2.21(BDS.5)

First run, lan to lan capabilites:

With ADP/Anti-X: 946 Mbytes / 793 Mbits/sec (i know for a fact that Anti-X/BWM/ADP is not in use over Lan-to-Lan so i didn’t find it necessery to run this testround without ADP/Anti-X.

Without ADP/Anti-X: 184 Mbytes / 155 Mbits/sec
With ADP/Anti-X: 120 Mbytes / 100 Mbits/sec

Conclusion and thoughts:
I’ve run multiple tests of every ”round” so the results shouldn’t vary too much. I, however doubt that round 3 with ADP/BWM & Anti-X enabled is correct because that test result should be closer to 60 mbit/s than 100 mbit/s. It might be a higher result in the end because of the ”30 days trial subscription” has ended and perhaps once I shut the services down it continued to stay off.
