I know I should understand this, but I don't. Can anyone help me understand dual band Wireless N?
Just got my first dual band router - the Netgear N600. I - stupidly - assumed that there'd just be one visible network to connect to, and the dual band device & router between them would sort out which was best to use at any one time, and switch automatically depending on load, environmental conditions, interference etc etc.
Surprised to see the radios appearing as completely separate networks on my iPhone5. So, am I supposed to just pick one, say the 5GHz assumign there's more interference on the 2.4 band, or do I connect to both at the same time? Is this possible?
Thoughts welcome. I've had a quick Google but am none the wiser.
