Why Your Router Has Two Wifi Bands and How They Work

Honestly, the only reason I am linking this story is because the sheer number of the people I know personally that do not know this. 

When a router is labelled as dual band, it means it can encode and decode radio waves at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies. Most new routers launched today will have this functionality, so it’s almost taken as a given that it’ll be included, and may not be mentioned prominently—though it’s worth double-checking.
