Sorry, I guess I am behind the times. Correct my thinking concerning wifi standards.
Some of the newer wifi devices like routers and access points can do other standards besides G and N (ac? a?)
but those extra letters are worthless if the computer / phone can't do those extra letters also, right?
do the common laptops / phones these days do those newer letters? I guess AC is the next step above N?
And N can do 2.5 and? or? 5 GHZ if both ends of the connection (access point and wireless device) can do them? But some N devices are only single band?
I guess the question is - does it pay to get an AC capable router / access point not knowing what devices will connect to it? what do you get with AC? more range? or faster throughput? Most of my dealings is just people using wifi to get on the web, so the internet connection is really the weak link in the chain of connection speeds.
