Are you saying you want them to be able to connect to both bands at the same time? I am not sure that's really needed. My iPad 3 gets great speeds connected to my 5ghz N network. The secret is to segment off your devices. Have certain ones connect to the 2.4ghz and others to the 5ghz. Prioritize based on function. Also get a good router. Don't use the ones your broadband company provides.
Yes, both at the same time. You may get great speeds connected to 5ghz, but you'll get even greater speeds connected to 5ghz AND 2.4ghz at the same time.
There are a handful of Windows USB adapters out there, and only ONE pcie adapter that I've found for 300+300. I'm surprised there aren't more out there, since routers are already way faster than that now.
I have a swank new Netgear 300+300 dsl modem/router, but all my devices are 2.4ghz, it aggravates me.
edit: Oh yeah, Windows wifi manager obviously can't connect to two networks at once, looks like these USB dongles have their own software to override Windows and manage the connections itself.
Saw a video a few days ago testing transfer speeds using true dual band, although it wasn't literally 'twice as fast', it was still enough to get me wanting some dongles heh.
