Benefits of dual band
The Duo technology in the DWA-160 supports selectable dualband (2.4GHz or 5GHz) wireless signals. This allows you to check e-mail and browse the Internet using the 2.4GHz band or stream HD movies and other media on the 5GHz band. The DWA-160 is also backward compatible, which means it can be used in existing 802.11g networks.
The DWA-160 utilizes MediaBandTM (5GHz), which is currently the best technology available for wirelessly streaming HD videos across your network. This is achieved by operating in a clear wireless band to avoid interference that may slow down and limit the range of current wireless technologies like 802.11g.
