Would I benefit from a Dual Band N Router? Tags: Routers Linksys Wireless Networking Last response: July 24, 2009 11:45 AM in Wireless Networking Share rwayne July 24, 2009 7:36:06 AM I am trying to decide between getting a standard N linksys router or a dualband linksys router. I have a cable internet connection and will have the following drawing off of the connection: 2 PCs 1 wireless printer 2 Nintendo DSs 1 Nintendo Wii & 1 laptop The only thing I stream is the viewing of random youtube videos. Do you think Dual Band is warranted in this situtation or would a single band be more than enough?

How many of those items listed are actually "N" wireless devices? Most will run on "B/G" so dual band might benefit you there. Same is true for any manufacturers enhancements to the wireless standards. Example: Super G The device at both ends of the connection must be capable of using the wireless enhancements.
