Yup, thought the N went without saying. 2.4Ghz N goes "up to" 300 mbps, 5ghz N goes "up to" 400-450 mbps. So, on a N band network, 5Ghz does translate to faster speeds

Yeah, I have never gone over the cap (but I have been close, last month I hit 213GB). i was hoping that if you upgraded to a faster line (105 Mbps) then they would up your cap, but that is not the case.

interesting, i did a little googleing and it looks like its just coming out and not many adapters are capable of using such speed at the moment. so you would have to make sure you get one.

i also remember something that the 2.4ghz band likes to travel farther then the 5ghz band but i may be mistaken.

It depends on the radio frequency type (VHF,UHF, ETC). I learned a bit about it when I was studying to be a paramedic. They were explaining they reasons different radio systems are employed in different geographical areas.

The actual frequency is what determines the type as you called it. (They are actually known as bands). 2.4Ghz in the UHF band. 5Ghz is in the SHF band. He's right as well. Higher frequencies are less able to pass through objects. This is due to their wavelenghts.

I spent 7 years getting my masters in Electrical Engineering.

Yikes, I'm just finishing an Associates in Network Engineering and going to probably push for Bachelors in Computer Science. Working as an EMT for 2 years out of high school made me go back to school again.....

I've been thinking about giving Untangle a go.
I have a old S478 board w/ P4 and some NIC's.
Would that be enough?

Heck yes.

My new Untangle bridge is...

P4 3.0Ghz
2Gb DDR2
80Gb SATA HDD
Dual NIC
and so on

Where did you get that little beauty and how much $$? I've used untangle at my school, but I want to put something like that at home. My little router over heats all the time and since I host 3 websites out of my homeserver, there are always connections being routed, and usually a lot because of all the google search bots tearing through the websites.

Get me in there, I have been telling everyone who asks about a new router to set this up, it's so much nicer than my old linksys 160. I have been using it for a few months and I am currently using it as my firewall and router but I am going to get the rest configured when I have time.

My Untangle Setup
CPU - AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
Mobo - ASUS A8N-SLI
RAM - Kingston Value RAM 4GB DDR 400
HDD - 80GB Western Digital SE
NIC - Two ASUS NX1101 Gigabit Network Adapters
Video - Nvidia 6800GT

My Network
Untangle PC
3com 24 port gigabit switch
Linksys WAP610N Wireless Access Point
My Monster
Xbox 360
PS3
Fiance's PC
Netbook

Just completed my degree in Networking, had an entire course on wireless (including Bluetooth).

5Ghz does have some range issues due to interference from objects, however, it is able to operate with interference from other devices (if you have a game console with wireless controls, wireless mice and keyboards, remote controls, wireless printers, ect, the 2.4Ghz wavelengths in your house are fairly crowded. 5Ghz will cut right through it. Since my bedroom is directly above my router, it may have to pass through the floor but it only has to travel 10 feet, so range isn't an issue.
