Wow... that sounds impressive. At that price though I doubt many home users will be buying them especially since it is a relatively unknown brand to the masses. If anyone gets one of these suckers I would like to know how well it works. I am currently using a dual band router in my home and the signal is not great in a few parts of my house. Oddly enough though I can get a connection on the other side of my neighbors house LOL.
Draco, the 5Ghz band cannot broadcast nearly as far as the 2.4Ghz band. 2.4 can go twice as far. Depending on how your wireless adapter is setup... what is likely happening is staying connected to the 5Ghz radio until it cannot find it anymore and then is switches to 2.4.
That or there could be something metal or dense blocking the signal.
An other thing to take into consideration, omnidirectional antenna are not truly omnidirectional... they may not broadcast as far in all directions... you could try rotating your router and see what effects that has.
