Recommendation for a home wifi system (a/n and b/g/n)

Sun Jan 13, 2013 9:56 pm

I need to setup wifi at a house thats actually more of an office. every room is an office... somewhat.
so signal is literally very important.

I wanted to have dual radios (a/n and b/g/n) in a few routerboards ... the only one that looks/is easy to setup is the rb2011-wifi but thats only 2.4 and i need 5Ghz also.

Can anyone advise on how to achieve this with what hardware?

To use both 2,4 and 5ghz, you'll ned a setup With 2 wlan Cards. No standard system from MT have this. You need a Board, and add another card.

Try http://routerboard.com/RB411UAHR as one possibility. and put it to a http://routerboard.com/CA411-711 and have a cheep abgn card to it.

If the 2.4GHz n is not really needed then the RB411AR should do the trick with added R52nM (or R52) for 5 GHz operations. Why the need for an GSM model, which is more expensive and that functionality is not needed anyway?

The RB411UAHR does not have b,g,n either, so why to recommend that?
