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

Overall I've seen better results with 2.4 than 5 on a most AP's. better range, overall better and more stable connections. All about finding the best channel. Usually auto will do its best to stay away from interference. Sometimes manually will be needed, especially if planning on doing roaming on a couple consumer grade routers.

i guess 2.4 is better as far as signal strength goes, but considering my wifi card and probly 99% other wifi cards dont include channel bonding on 2.4 freq wich means running 40mz on 2.4 is pointless most of the time, im also under the assumtion this is done by companies to make u have to buy the new dual band routers to get these speeds, even tho technically 300M is achievable on wifi just 2.4, i bet 1/1,000,000 people on with a wireless 300m router are actually receiving that speed, its basically a marketing scam unless you buy d links dwa 643 adapter or something similar, i just really wanna see a pic of someone getting the claimed 300M on a 300M router, better yet my router

The only time I've gotten 300 using 2.4 was during a power-outage, all the neighbor's 2.4 GHz stuff was offline...

Internet speeds were really quick too haha

lol like actually? i didnt think my neighbors were causing this but maybe they are, there are a few networks in the area (5-10) detectable from time to time, but i considered this fairly light compared to some areas ive seen, does this mean ur using a dir 655 aswell kevinds? also u got bb50 like me? or what speed if not 50

Access Points using 40 MHz seem to be very sensitive to neighbors, so they drop down to 130 to avoid interferance with neighboring services, I'm confident it is built into the spec for 40 MHz, but not all devices implment it properly.

No, the D-Link routers I've used won't do MAC Filtering properly, so I don't use them.
