Basically wireless n gives you faster speeds and bigger range compared to g
however because you're streaming and your connection to the internet is only 1up and 7 down
that is your bottle neck
so either G or N will be good enough
...well, we're testing this new service that can also provide 13 down, so does that make a difference in recommendation of the router?
also what is the meaning of '802.11a', '802.11b'
no it doesn't
bot g and n are faster speeds than 1/7
a and b are old standards
and what is 'dual band'
they are slower than g and n
dual band means that it can use 2.4Ghz and also the 5Ghz frequency
most routers now support dual band
does the frequency matter? also if we upgrade our connection to 13 or 15 down then would either g or n still support the streaming?
no the frequency will depend on the 802.11a/b/g/n that connects to the router
yes G or N will support the streaming - just keep in mind that its the speed from the Laptop to the Router
that's the main difference
compared to router and ISP speed
