Recently, I tried to switch from the Mixed network (G & N) to only-N network. And I notice a significant improvement on my N devices although my router doesn't support 5 Ghz. Here I have a few questions, I hope that you could help:
1. In term of speed of transferring files, is 5GHz router noticeably better than 2.4 Ghz ? I want to stream movies and pictures (around 10 MB each) from a PC (wifi) to PS3 (wired).
2. Can dual-band router have simultaneously 2 different networks: N-network function at 5GHz with channel bonding, and at the same time G-network functionning at 2.4 Ghz with no channel bonding ?
3. Does the gigabit router help me to stream HD movies to PS3 (PC wifi, PS3 wired) ?
Thank you in advance for your inputs.
