but actually I only see 11 out of the 25 latest updated threads being theme-related.
Used to be more than half. (I think?)

My home has a network that is probably better than most small businesses. I've been through my share of routers.

Yeah bud, I ran lynksys for years, but I have found true set and forget it bliss with AE. Oh yeah, there's an app for that is the icing on the cake.

Keep in mind I have a wireless printer, Apple TV, iPad mini, MacBook Pro, 2 iPhone 5's, my hackintosh, and an iPhone 4S all on the same wireless.
Having a single ban at 2.4 ghz may be hindering my connectivity. Dual band will allow my i5's to connect to the 5ghz band

I know that before I got the dual-band I would be able to get solid 12Mb/s wireless each and every time no matter what device. That's also when my ISP cap was 10Mb/s. I have a new ISP and new router now.

"The GHz range of a wireless radio is only partially related to the speed of a wireless network. For example, 802.11a wireless operates at 5GHz and 802.11g at 2.4GHz, but both support the same maximum data rate of 54 Mbps. However, newer 802.11n routers have the capability of simultaneous dual-band operation on both 5GHz and 2.4GHz ranges, allowing clients to connect on different bands for more flexibility and less interference. 802.11ac expands on that, running entirely in the 5GHz band."
So as far as my understanding. "N" routers can handle 150-450Mbps on a single ban. So really a single ban router can handle speeds of even really fast Internet. Now if you have a dual band router the router can offer those spreads on each band.
So my thinking is that because majority of my devices operate in 2.4 ghz my single ban router needs to support all of these devices on one single band. Where as a dual band would allow my iPhone 5's to use the 5ghz band.
Either way. I'm thinking my router just sucks *** haha

1)In the lengthy tech-ie exchange between Suby and Anthony have we all concluded that Suby's ISP cap (of 12Mbps down) is more his issue with the iP5 or is his mono band router more the issue?
2) King, does the AE have all the advanced VPN and port forwarding options that other 'small business'-type routers have? Linksys is known for catering to small businesses.
Thanks, all.Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

Now with FiOS I get 50MB/s and I've never buffered on a single video on any web site.
You told us you get 12MB/s down right? What speeds are you promised by your ISP?

I would agree with you if it happened on everything. But out of the 5 other devices (computers and Idevices) I never have buffer issues. Only on the iPhone 5
Also the iPhone 5 buffer issue is a well known issue
Atv - no buffering while streaming HD movies
iPad mini - no buffering watching any videos.
MacBook - no buffering watching any videos
Hackintosh - no buffering watching any videos.
iPhone 4S - no buffering on any videos
iPhone 5 x 2 - buffers on EVERY video small or large, SD or HD
So if this was a bandwidth problem wouldn't I have an issue on all my devices?
Also I have a wireless printer connected to my network. So that is 8 devices that all connect to my router and share a single band. Also I live in a condo complex with very close neighbors. Who all have wireless devices and wireless phone that most all commonly run on a 2.4ghz frequency
My guess is I need to get a dual band router so my iPhone 5's can operate on the 5ghz band while the other devices that already have no issue run off the 2.4 ghz band

If its simultaenous dual band then it basically creates a wifi network for each freq range to run simultaneously. This is what the airport extreme does automatically. I would assume other routers handle this similarly, but I've only been using this one since I've had a 5ghz devices.

In essence it's like having two wireless n's in one router

And for what it's worth I was able to play HD video with no buffering on my 4S on a 12MB downstream easily. 12MB is plenty fast for HD video stream.Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!
