2.4ghz vs 5ghz
Single band wifi router
High range & lower data speed
able to penetrate walls & objects
Cons: frequency band overlapping 2.4ghz band also uses smart TV’s, bluetooh devices, phones.
Signal overlapping means low coverage &lower speed.
Non overlapping channels, 1,6,11
in your apartment lot Sufis out there to use same frequency band in the air, so that could be a bigger problem.
Switching over to 5ghz is a better idea if you face any connectivity issues.
Higher frequency & low range (because of higher frequency)
Unable to penetrate the hardthings.
This is where a dual band wifi routers existed?
40/80/160 MHz which leads to higher data rate more speed for gaming/ streaming.
However, 2.4ghz also supports upton 300mbps,
When to go for dual band wifi route rs or gigabyte routers?
If you are using 1Gbps broadband bandwidth, you should definitely upgrade to your wifi router to access the high speed internet.
802.11n vs 802.11ac speed

750mbps (real world)
It’s used by 5ghz wifi routers
8 anntenna each at 450mbps
Smartphone only 1antenna, laptop 1-2, desktop 3-4 antenna
Wifi to smartphone
802.11ac at one metre: 90MBps, 10 metres: 70MBps and at 20 metres behind two solid walls: 50MBps
802.11n at one metre: 30MBps, 10 metres: 20MBps and at 20 metres behind two solid walls: 5-10MBps
Wi-Fi 802.11g combines the best of both 802.11a and 802.11b. 802.11g that supports a bandwidth up to 54 Mbps, and it uses the 2.4 GHz frequency for greater range.
Upgrade your wifi card in PC / laptop?
some laptop wifi cards pre configured with low bandwidth like 20Mhz which leads 1mbps even on 60mbps broadband speed.
I have changed in windows wifi adapter properties it’s worked.
Make sure to change the wifi router bandwidth selection for higher speed?
3rd upgrade broadband speed with your isp.
