Getting to know the Belkin AC1200 DB Wi-Fi Dual-Band AC+ Gigabit Modem Router

The Belkin AC1200 DB Wi-Fi Dual-Band AC+ Gigabit Modem Router is a router with power modem capability.  It utilizes dual-band network technology which creates two separate networks: 2.4 GHz band and 5 GHz band.  This allows an increase in bandwidth to all your connected wireless devices and computers through the 5 GHz band, but still maintains backwards-compatibility with older wireless devices through the 2.4 GHz band.
