Re: getting the most out of bb50 or more via wifi

If you were running BB100, I would expect you to get the same wireless performance you get now.

Dual-Band router may assist, I the 5.8 has much lower 'range' because it doesn't travel through solid-objects as well, but also helps with less interfance and higher speeds.

If you can disconnect the power from your slower devices, it may help your router not have to fall-back to 20 MHz, speeding things up, maybe connecting at closer to 300 instead of 130. If your Macbook won't bond 2.4, this really doesn't matter though.

If you get a dual-band router, you won't lose the 2.4, you will be adding the 5.8, so you would be providing both at the same time in your place. - No device will use both at the same time, but they can use whichever is better.

In my opinion, trying to get faster than the 30-40 you currently get wirelessly, isn't worth the investment, if you need the extra speed for something, plug in for that period of time.
