    Default Wifi 802.11ac Compliance

    Does anyone know if the Galaxy Note2 AT&T variant is compatible or compliant with Wifi 802.11ac?
    Maybe this new version of wifi could be explained a little bit here, its benefits and what it does or doesnt do. What impact does it have on the GN2?
    Thank you in advance

    It does not. No phone does to my knowledge. It will require different hardware to get it.

    This is new technology and has not really been implemented in the phone market yet, as Maxburn stated, going to require different hardware and I don't think the phone world is ready to step off that cliff yet. (battery drain, configuration issues, etc)

    wifi ac is a newer faster protocol. If I remember right it boasts lower latency and higher bandwidth than N. However having said that the GN2 will work with an AC router, (I bought one) - it will just operate with the N protocol and speed. Here's a snippet from cnet (link below)

    Netgear's first 802.11ac router, the WiFi 6300, is set to be available for purchase this month.

    802.11ac (aka 5G Wi-Fi) is the next step after 802.11n (aka N or Wireless-N, which is currently is the most popular Wi-Fi standard). It's backward-compatible with N, meaning that a 5G Wi-Fi router will support N clients and 5G Wi-Fi clients will also be able to connect to an N router. Wireless-N, in turn, is backward compatible with the rest of the wireless standards, including 802.11g, 802.11b, and 802.11a. ..... Similar to Wireless-N, 802.11ac, for now, comes in three tiers, based on the number of streams. The more streams, the more bandwidth a device can handle. For example, Wireless-N has caps of 150Mbps with single-stream, 300Mbps with dual-stream, and 450Mbps with three-stream. 5G Wi-Fi connections are set to be about three times faster, starting with 450Mbps in single-stream, 900Mbps (dual-stream) and 1.3Gbps (three-stream). So technically, 5G Wi-Fi is the first wireless standard that breaks the gigabit barrier"

    Can you PM me and tell me more about your router. JUST ORDERED A Asus RT-AC66U 802.11ac router. Kind of excited. Had a tough time choosing between the R6300 EA 6500 and the Asus.
    Hope its working great for you. The simultaneous 2.4 and 5 gig is awesome
