Testing 5 GHZ wifi at home – rtn VFRmedia
Sep 272014
 

I got a “dual band” D-link access point for 5 GHz (as 2.4 GHz is way too crowded in the suburban area I live in; full of interference + defective routers that folk unknowingly get lumbered with by their ISPs).

It only works on one band at a time but that is exactly what I wanted it to do (as the Draytek router already provides 2.4 GHz signal) – now I can use my cheap Android tablet for streaming media more reliably; and this laptop is far faster (not got that many other devices that use 5GHz but this also takes the load off the 2.4 GHz network). 5GHz does not go as far for the power or through walls as easily; but I don’t live in a huge house so the coverage is just right for my needs…

not seen these kind of antennas before (would make sense if there are two slightly different sized elements)

the (!) after CE mark is a warning from the CEPT to follow the rules (i.e use correct channels for your country and don’t take the piss with high gain antennas)

but with this much free space there is no need to break them 😉

I wonder how long things will stay like this?

(I removed some numbers from SSID of the Virgin routers that some neighbours have as these often give away clues to hackers)
