Linksys wap300n - Dual band but you have to choose one or the other
Posted on 2013-10-21
review from Amazon
A couple of minor drawbacks to be aware of:
- Although the device is dual-band (it can use the 2.4Ghz range, which is compatible with nearly all wifi equipment, as well as the 5GHz band, which is less congested but supported by less devices), it cannot do both at the same time.
- Although it claims "up to 300Mbps speed" on the packaging, it only has a 100Mbps Ethernet port to link to the rest of your network - so if a wireless client was actually capable of reaching that advertised speed, it would be limited by the Ethernet port speed anyway!
> Is this a big problem? 2.4 - compatible with new and old but not fast.
or 5GHz > Fast but not compatible with old kit.
Are you forced to choose 2.4 or 5 on most Access points or do some broadcast on both at the same time?
