    Hello, I recently moved and the person i moved in with has a dual band netgear router, i personally have a AirPort Extreme(Not Dual Band) (2007 Model). I often transfer files from my MBP to my iMac and stream video to my PS3 and Apple TV. Should i scrap the Netgear and replace it with my Airport Extreme?

    Thanks

    And your reasoning for doing that would be what exactly?

    What is the model number of the Netgear router and what is the year/version of the Airport Extreme?

    The Netgear N150 Wireless Router is not a dual band router since it only operates at 2.4GHz.


    Both versions of the AirPort Extreme released in 2007 can provide either a 5 GHz or a 2.4 GHz wireless network but are not simultaneous dual-band capable.

    You would best be served by not using either and purchasing a new wireless router that can support either 450GHz or 300GHz. Keep in mind though that just because a new router can offer those speeds does not mean that the end devices have support for it.
