The benefits of dual band networking Almost every ISP that provides a router will offer a single band (2.4 Ghz router). 2.4 Ghz is the most common type of Wi-Fi band in the US. However due to popular demand, more carriers including Cox Communications are offering customers dual band Wi-Fi routers that operate on both the 2.4 and the 5 GHz frequency. These dual band routers are also sold online and in retail stores. These routers broadcast two separate Wi-Fi networks at the same time, one on each band. If your computer only supports 2.4 GHz, which is most likely, you cannot connect on the 5 GHz band which is a faster spectrum with much less interference. A dual band upgrade like AWUS052NH from Alfa means you can install the software and plug it into your USB port and begin taking advantage of the 5 GHz performance. A dual band router is required to see benefits from this product. It is also compatible with 2.4 GHz networks but will work like a standard Wi-Fi receiver with 2.4 GHz signals. It will work with any computer that has an available USB port and Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8/8.1. This works on Microsoft Surface Pro tablets running Windows 8 (requires driver download) but does NOT work with Windows Surface RT tablets or other tablets/laptops running Microsoft Surface RT, which looks like Windows 8 but is actually a locked down version of Windows that does not support 3rd party drivers.
