Is 802.11n single band only 2.4GHz

My new »store.vizio.com/e500ia1-1.html Vizio E500i-A1 LED LCD 1080p/120Hz does 802.11n in single band only. Does that mean that it only does 802.11n in 2.4GHz only??? If so then will it do 150Mbps or 300Mbps??? Anyway I won't be using the wireless feature but the Ethernet port only for the built in Apps. I just want to know is all.

2.4Ghz is the frequency that is broadcast & carries the data, back and forth between (ex) a wireless router & a wireless laptop.

The 150, 300Mbps is the data rate, made possible with 802.11n and the routers capability.

If a product says it is dual band, then it is 2.5ghz & 5.0ghz capable.

I'd personally be very surprised if it was single-band 5.0Ghz.

As for max thruput, you'd have to get the TV and benchmark it's maximum speed.

Just my 00000010bits

I just got the new set all hooked up today television. I unplugged the Ethernet cord from the router and it enabled the Wi-Fi. I broadcast wireless N and A only on my Belkin router.
Wireless 802.11n @ 2.4GHz
SSID: belkin.0b2.4GHz
Wireless 802.11n & 802.11a @ 5GHz
SSID belkin.0b5GHz
It only found Belkin.0b2.4GHz witch means it can only do wireless 802.11n @ 2.4GHz

Usually single band n uses the more common/compatible 2.4ghz band. As to speed, that would depend on the number of antenna (1r1t, 2t2r, or 3t3r) and the channel width supported on the device and your router.
