Not sure if this was the correct area to post this, but it has to do with wireless, so here goes.....
I've researched and looked online for all kinds of information on 2.4g and 5g, my router has 2 networks, named wireless2g and wireless5g respectively. When I connect to the 2.4Ghz network, I get a much further range than 5g, which I've read is normal, But I only see 11Mbps on speed...the signal is amazing, but the speed is weak. When I connect to the 5ghz network the signal is about 50% and the speed is right around 80-150Mbs depending. I'm 2 rooms away from the router.
Do I just change networks as I go, meaning I should use the 2g network for long range, and when I'm closer use the 5g for speed? And does the dual band just mean it can use 1 or the other? Not both at the same time right? I have the high end Wireless N Dual band USB for my laptop just as an FYI.
If you need more information, i'll be happy to provide it...thanks for helping me.
