What are Dual Band Routers?
In Wi-Fi wireless networking, dual band is the ability to transmit on the 5 GHz band of 802.11a as well as the 2.4 GHz band used by 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n.
Unlike ordinary Wi-Fi equipment that only supports one signal band, dual-band equipment contains two different types of wireless radios that can support connections on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz links.
Nowadays, Dual-band Wi-Fi is offered in some wireless routers, network adapters, some cellular phones (utilizing a kind of dual band communications, separate from Wi-Fi).
As said, dual band routers contain two different types of wireless radios, to support two bands. When first introduced dual band routers supported both 802.11a and 802.11b. And were aimed at accommodating users on both types of Wi-Fi bands. Latest 802.11n Wi-Fi routers also allow simultaneous dual band communication with both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. This gives maximum flexibility. The latest being 802.11ac. The AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router TEW-812DRU, is TRENDnet’s first 802.11ac router. The Wi-Fi standard 802.11n is slower than the 802.11ac.
