Intro to Dual Band Routers: What are dual band routers?



do you remember when the internet was mainly used for emailing family and friends it's amazing to think how quickly things have changed now you can video chat with your friends halfway across the world and stream full-length movies from sites like Netflix and Vudu straight to your HDTV but here's the thing streaming HD content is a bandwidth intensive and delay sensitive application so in other words streaming HD media uses a lot of your router strengths and doesn't deal well with a slow or unreliable connection so it's important to make sure that your router is up to the task you need to make sure that it can give you the fastest speeds and the most reliable connections possible so you can enjoy your HD videos without any delays or interruptions luckily however that our router is available that are specifically designed to handle HD streaming they're called dual band robbers well let's like the name implies do bad routers operate on two separate wireless fans many wireless routers operate on only one band the 2.4 gigahertz band which is the same wireless band the devices like cordless phones and other household appliances use while the 2.4 gigahertz band is fine for surfing the internet and check an email it can get overly congested making it virtually unsuitable for high bandwidth applications like streaming video dual band routers like d-link wireless n750 dual band router or the dir 8 3 5 offered on both the commonly used 2.4 gigahertz band and the clear 5 gigahertz band which is much less prone to interference from other devices so that means that you can check email and surf the internet on one band while streaming HD movies on the other so neither bank gets overloaded kind of like having two separate wireless networks in one we hope that you've learned a little bit about dual band technology just remember that dual band routers broadcast two wireless signals the 2.4 gigahertz band and the 5 gigahertz band that lets you stream HD media throughout your house while still allowing your other devices to perform at their best thanks for watching and enjoy

    "This router has two bands" … See… Dual Band! Congratulations D-Link for stating the obvious.
    This video is a waste of server space.

    just received a dual band wifi gateway from xfinity they told me to keep everything connected to the 2.4 band only because its more secure and only let guest use the 5 band when they visit. It sounds from this video that my tv and game consoles should connect to the 5 band because that is where I do most of the Netflix streaming. any reply's would be great

    I have always had good luck w/ D-Link plus I have always found their UI pretty easy to use compared to other companies.

    Very informative, now t know the difference…too bad you have to promote garbage d-link routers.  I purchased ONE and it never was stable, and dropped wired connections constantly.

    thank you for this video. I have had the 825 for a few years without knowing the difference. The myth in my house is that you shouldn't use the dlink_media. What they don't know won't hurt them. 😉

    Hi, Thanks for the reply.
    I am using an apple airport express in the 1st floor of my house. The problem i faced was i don't get the 5ghz band signal constantly either in the ground floor or the second floor. But the range with the 2.4 ghz Band is awesome.

    se ve bueno el producto… pero para aprovechar la red wifi-n (5 GHZ) tendríamos q comprar dispositivos wifi-n q hasta el momento no son muy comerciales y ni sé en cuánto tiempo lleguen a perú 🙁
