Does Shaw Internet supports triple band modem?
Hi there tanaquinie,
At this time, none of our modem + router units have a built-in tri-band router. Please see the below articles for more information on the modem + router units we currently have available.
Hardware Information - Cisco DPC3825 Internet Modem
Hardware Information - SMC D3GN Internet Modem
Hardware Information - SMC 8014WN Internet Modem
Hardware Information - Arris SBG6782 Advanced WiFi Modem
What if a client bought a triple band wifi modem from a store and use it instead? Thanks.
At this time we do not support third party modems, only the ones that we provide. We are continuously evolving our hardware offerings, though so stay tuned!
If you want to buy a Tri-Band router like the Netgear R8000 Nighthawk X6, the DPC3825 can be put into Bridge Mode for you.
*shakes head* The tech in me wants to know how 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 5GHz, amounts to 'Tri-Band' but I don't suspect I will get an answer
There is a band of channels at 2.4 GHz, then there is the lower band of 5 GHz channels, and the upper hand of 5 GHz channels. These two bands in 5 GHz are separated by frequencies used in aviation and military.
