Re: WiFi in garden - wouldn't cAP AC be better than wAP AC?

Get Groove 52 ac
DO NOT DO THIS!
Groove has only one radio, therefore you have to select - either 2GHz or 5GHz. It can't do both at the same time like any usual AP.
I noticed that. Going for wAP AC.

No, I removed .11a just after posting that post - realized it is not used anymore.

I removed "control channel" and "extension channel" and speeds are now ok. Thanks for assistance.
