      If it is that slow – you really do need to upgrade.

    I cannot find any wireless adapter that can support 802.11n 2.4ghz over 300Mb/s and 802.11 ac 5ghz over 1.3 Gb/s

    You can buy triple band router, you can use 3 devices on the 3 different networks ( 2.4ghz, 5ghz-1 and 5ghz-2) but you won’t use them properly.

    I think people only need classic dual band router under 100$

    Looks like the design team just stopped trying to hide the fact that these designs are getting ridiculous…


    Very interesting…… I would love to hear more of this router and it’s real world applications/benchmarks.
