    with this chip it will be easier to provide Access Point coverage to accommodate all forms of wireless communication throughout my property. Reply

    So how long will it be until the 5Ghz band is saturated and we have the same problem as we do now with 2.4Ghz? Reply

    Perhaps eventually this will gain steam in some market segments:

    5 GHz has some inherent advantages over the 2.4 GHz range. I'll let this article, which I just now pulled out of the air via Google, explain:

    Even if we all moved over to 5 GHz, negating the last two points, we'd still be better off.

    So much recent debate about the strength of MIPS in Networking equipment on previous Anand MIPS article, like i said they were only milking the product for as long as possible before the inevitable switch to ARM.

    And finally we can get faster router performance for cheap, and for those who keep on arguing about you dont need a WAN port with ~ 1Gbps performance. There is actually a world beyond US that offers that kind of internet speed at affordable price.

    And by switching to ARM it wont be long before we see the convergence of NAS and router.
