What part of a router is most important for streaming HD to multiple sources? - Page 3

My Old Router: Cisco WRT160N

My New Router: ASUS RT-N66U

I have one device that was able to connect to 5Ghz.. it's a BluRay Player that I keep in my room. Everything else connects to 2.4, just like it did to my old router. Despite being on 2.4 the new router does seem to be performing significantly better.

I thought the 2.4GHz vrs 5GHz is just the band it uses. 5GHz can get more through put, but the range is less. Opposite for 2.4GHz. It is all still Wireless N.

Have you tried setting your router only to 5GHz mode rather than mixed? I would not be surprised to see all the devices connect to it. Dual band has been around long enough that I think it would need be a rather old, or perhaps rather cheap, device not to be compatible.

The range on 5GHz seems to be OK for most home usage...though I still have an access point in my basement and in the upstairs of my house so that I keep strong connections.
