Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts

I've got a new virgin media wireless router and there are two different networks I can connect to on it. One is labelked 2Ghz and the other 5Ghz. Anyone know what the difference is? Is one faster? Or...what? Why are there two? Thanks

5ghz is 64mbps minimum and can be up to 108mbps, and is less prone to noise inteference while 2.4ghz is 54mbps i think, 5 is much faster but very few bits of kit can use it. What your connecting to it with needs to be capable of using it.
