why is Shaw so far behind in tech when the rest of the world is using dual band WiFi and Shaw is still stuck in the dark ages
Hey mark67 - Currently none of Shaw's vendors offer a dual band wifi cable modem/gateway solution. Those who want advanced feature sets often prefer to own and manage their own networking equipment, resulting in the current compromise in the market place.
It is an optional-feature-upgrade for dual-band modems (as I recall). But have to ask, is it really needed? Most people don't care, and it would raise the cost of the modem for everybody.
If you have the knowledge to want dual-band, you are a very good candidate for bridge-mode and your own network gear.
it is true most people don't care but i would love to have this so my videos don't lag as there are 14 people in my area on 2.5GHz and they are all over the spectrum and the 5GHz i not used at all.
kevinds i had my own gear and gave it up as i was told they had dual band by Shaw if i had known i never would have bout my router from Shaw and now its more money ill have to put out
