Let down by 5Ghz indoor only channel support...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Edimax EW-7733UND N450+ 450Mbps Wireless 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4GHz/5GHzDual Band USB Adapter (Accessory)
Think this has identical chipset to Trendnet TEW-684UB as the client software is effectively the same. The Edimax slightly outperformed the Trendnet in my tests to a 3x3:3 dual-band Enterprise Access Point, so maybe it has better antenna or driver implementation.
However, compared to the Trendnet it is let down by supporting only indoor 5Ghz channels (ch 36-48) so you can't take advantage of the higher power channels (ch 100 upwards). This severely limits coverage on 5Ghz because the lower power channels don't penetrate walls very well.
