    Im assuming that the new 2011 mac range is fully capable of using 5hz as opposed to 2.4?

    Again same scenario with the iphone 4S's?

    In my house there are 2 iphones and 1 MBA using wireless and the signal constantly drops. Im just curious if i can switch to 5 and they still work?

    iPhones can only access 2.4 GHz 802.11n networks.

    My 2009 MacBook Pro worked on 5GHz, so no reason why a 2011 one wouldn't.

    No iPhone/iPod will work on 5GHz.
