Single band wireless card in laptop

I'm considering buying a laptop, everything looks perfect, besides one thing, which would be the wireless card. It's only single band, rather than dual. What does this mean? Can I still online game, Skype, YouTube, etc.? Will the connection drop often?

The actual card: Intel 802.11b/g/n WLAN and Bluetooth(R)

  1. Best answer
    Yes, you can still play online games, Skype, etc. Dual band vs. single band refers to using different wavelengths to communication with compatible routers. Really not a concern for most users. You will be more than fine with a single band unit. No worries.
  2. The card that in the laptop is a good 2.4g card that does the older b and g speeds for older wifi routers and the newer n. it be a few years till a lot of the home routers and wifi spots switch to 5ghz band. Open wifi people still trying to get more free open bandwidth for wifi.
