What is dual band with 2.4/5 and n/ac

What is dual band with 2.4/5 and n/ac

I own a netgear WNDR4300 simultaneous dual band router. Dual band is for me 802.11n on both 5GHz and 2.4GHz simultaneously. How is that on the AC1900? What I like to accomplish is simultaneous 802.11n 2.4GHz, 802.11n 5GHz and 802.11ac 5GHz. I read all specs but I cannot figure out if the AC1900 can do that.

Maybe someone can connect the dots for me.

I use an R7000 with a variety of WiFi clients of differing capabilities e.g. ‘b/g’, ‘b/g/n’, ‘b/g/n/AC’ and I don’t see any significant compromises with any device even when operating ‘simultaneously’.

Same thing for me... R7000 is a good product... I'm only waiting firmware improvements...

● Netgear R7000 (Root Router)
● TP-Link Archer C7 v2 (WDS Bridge)

Thanks, a R7000 it will be then.

Ok, since you are waiting improvements, what issues do you encounter?

They are discussed somewhere in this forum...

Nevertheless, the major point where TP-Link is much better than Netgear is the WDS bridging. It works easily with WPA2-AES encryption when Netgear requires WEP + crossed MAC addresses...

Ok, got it. That is why I did not use WDS bridging since it will make the whole network vulnerable using WEP.
