Benefits Of Dual Band
The dual band N technology in the DWA-160 supports selectable 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz wireless signals. This allows you to check e-mail and browse the Internet using the 2.4 GHz band or stream HD movies and other media on the 5 GHz band. The 5 GHz wireless band is the best technology available for wirelessly streaming HD videos across your network. It achieves this by operating in a clear wireless band to help avoid interference that may slow down and limit the range of current wireless technologies like 802.11g*. The DWA-160 is also backward compatible to 802.11g, which means it can be used in existing 802.11g networks.
