Summary: I originally considered dual band router due to very heavy wireless (2.4Ghz) area I live in. Too many people, too few channels available. I've been using two belkin 2.4Ghz wireless routers before. So i checked my laptops and phones and figured out that most of them do support 802.11a (5Ghz). This is band where not many people operate. Great speed - yes! But for me it was about reliability and stability to move to band where noone is operating.
Summary: Bought this to replace an aging DLink DIR-655 which has become a bit temperamental. This time I decided to get a dual band router due to large number of WiFi networks near our house (approx 15!). Initially tried a dual band belkin (F6D6230UK4) but this was extremely unstable. On paper the edimax has everthing we needed : gigabit ports, dual band and QoS.
Summary: First of all I should say that I am a very experienced IT technician & very familiar with networking. My home network (used by a family with older teens) has, 4 desktops, 3 laptops, couple of netbooks, kindles, NAS, network print, ipad, android tablet and and assortment of phones, PSPs, NDS devices. We have a mix of physical and wireless network, with a couple of access points.
Summary: Having had connection problems since buying a third computer for the family i decided to buy a new router to solve the problem. After a bit of research i decided to buy the Edimax BR-6475ND router. Located in an upstairs bedroom , it was easy to install and works well in every room, both upstairs and down.
