dual band access point vs stand alone accesspoint Tags: Connectivity Office Wireless Networking Last response: October 13, 2008 9:33 AM in Wireless Networking Share ashlyjay October 3, 2008 3:02:12 AM Im just curious about this topic that my friend raise us. We have 3 different accesspoint here in our office. 1 dual band AP, 1pc 2.4 GHz AP and 1pc 5.0Ghz. This are our concerns. dual band ( 5.0Ghz ) vs stand alone ( 5.0Ghz ) = who has greater signal or better connectivity? dual band ( 2.4Ghz ) vs stand alone ( 2.4Ghz ) = who has greater signal or better connectivity? Some of my friends said that it would be better using stand-alone AP because it has longer range than dual band. Dual band has shorter range because he will be transmitting 2 signal. Is this correct?
