Why use a dual band as a WISP router/repeater? Here's some test figures from my experiences:
Connect directly to the source router (standing right next to) @ 2.4 GHz 46Mb
Connect directly to the source router (at the "extreme" of the house) @ 2.4 Ghz 30Mb
WISP to source router on 2.4Ghz and connect to AR750s LAN on 2.4Ghz 22Mb (yes it's lower but I'm now on my own subnet for security)
WISP to source router on 2.4Ghz and connect to the AR750s LAN on 5Ghz 45Mb (fast and secure)

So WISPing on one band and LAN on another makes a big difference to throughput. Handy if you're using one of these as a WiFi repeater/range extender/VPN passthrough or similar.

p.s. I'd suggest updating to their "testing" 3.022 firmware as it appears to be more stable than their stable (shipped) release

  • Why would they give it 433Mbps 5GHz then ruin it by putting 3x 100Mbit ports?

    • +1

      $$$

      433Mbps is under ideal conditions, and half duplex.

      In real life, 433Mbps wireless would be pretty close to 100Mbps wired in actually achieved speed.

  • If you want to go Gigabit in the same form factor you need to "upgrade" to the AR750S (Slate).

    And yep more expensive.

  • Thanks OP. Bought one (although I got to wait an extra 30 minutes for the sin of not coughing up for 'Prime'.)

    And extra thanks for your reviews of related 'toys' at the-gadgeteer.

    Much appreciated for even us relative non-techie types!

      @lostincanberra Thanks for the feedback! At the Gadgeteer (and it's also a personal goal, I think because I have a training background) we try to do honest, real life, easy to understand reviews rather than high tech ones based on short term loan units :)
