Ps3 restarts when updating playstation home
Band steering—specifically load-balancing band steering—lets you use a single network name for all your Wi-Fi bands, and lets the router decide which devices go on 2.4 GHz and which on 5 GHz, based on where they are in your house and how much bandwidth they’re using.Band steering is essential for mesh networks, which have multiple access points and multiple bands to deal with, but it’s important even in stand-alone routers, because if you aren’t using all the radios in your router, you aren’t getting all the performance you paid for.But compared with our top pick, getting the RT-AC3200’s band steering working required a ton of tweaking—and because until you figure it out you’ll have to connect to the router’s three bands on three separate SSIDs—for most people, the added frustration required to make this router work as well as it can work isn’t worth it.
A 2×2 laptop won’t get any more throughput from a 4×4 router than it would from a 2×2 router, though it’ll still get twice as much as a 1×1 laptop.
Load-balancing band steering becomes even more important with tri-band routers—that extra radio won’t do you any good if none of your devices are actually connected to it.
We used to recommend against spending the extra money on tri-band routers, but busier networks in more congested areas can definitely benefit. In the real world, AC1900 means pretty much the same thing AC1750 does—a dual-band router with one 2.4 GHz radio and one 5 GHz radio, each supporting up to three spatial streams.
If you’re happy with your Wi-Fi, you don’t need a new router—it’s as simple as that.
If you’re having problems with range, speed, or reliability, though, it might be time for an upgrade.
A typical home network in 2017 doesn’t look like it did in 2012.
