Re: upgrade wifi to support 5GHZ

Hi,

 

Thank you so much for responding to my question.  I looked at the service guide - page 3 yesterday and saw the below. Can you explain the last option in bold/italics? This led me to believe that I could purchase the AC 3165 and get 5GHZ since it is dual band.

 

Thanks

Dave
