dual band access point vs stand alone accesspoint
Oct 3, 2008, 3:02 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?

I guess it depends on your (dual-band) router, whether it is switching back and forth or running 2 frequencies at the same time. Read some here,
