My review here
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 latest "testing" firmware as it appears to be more stable than their stable (shipped) release
