plus it's triband versus this one that's dual-band only, which is a big deal for people who are not able to use wired back haul between each node

Can you elaborate? I have the dual band (2 pack), FIOS gigabit feeding device 1, and device 2 providing WiFi across my house to the Mac in my office. I understand that if I ran a cat cable all the way to device 2, I'd get my gigabit speed over WiFi instead of the 250 Mb I get now in the office due to signal loss…. But how does the triband help in this area where, as you put it, wired back haul is unavailable? Thanks so much.

The third radio/third band is dedicated to running wireless backhaul between the APs. On a dual band unit, AP-AP communication runs on the same channels as AP-Device communication. Just rough numbers for an example: A tri-band may have a 1Gbps link for backhaul + 1Gbps links for 5GHz clients + 250Mbps links for 2.4GHz clients, where a dual-band would only have a 1Gbps link for 5GHz backhaul and clients + 250Mbps for 2.4GHz clients.

In a small household that may never become a practical problem, but the more devices you have the greater the chances become that you'll see issues.

Oh thanks that's awesome. Yeah it's a 2 person household with like 5 devices. So probably not a meaningful difference if I switch to triband. I truly appreciate the reply!!
