Dual band router

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am currently using Netgear router R6020, which support dual bandwidth- 2.4Ghz and 5 GHz. My question is that, can I use 5Ghz bandwidth for data transfer between my laptops and PC? I am using my ethernet connection onto the 2.4Ghz connection. If I can use it for data transfer, how to? What is the other usage of dual bandwidth router?

Well if you want devices to use 5Ghz, they both need to have a radio that supports that frequency.

Your router supports it, that's good. But your end device needs to support it as well so i think that's the problem.

 

Maybe this helps?

You connect to the 5GHz-band instead of 2.4GHz and do your transfers. That's all there is to it.

ethernet and wifi don't mix.

you choose either one.

All of them will be processed in the same chip anyway.

If you're laptop is 5ghz, it will connect to the PC (with ethernet) in 5ghz speed.
