    "Fast !...no lag...It turns out that Smart Connect not only manages this transparently behind the scenes but it does it dynamically, so if the kids are gaming on multiple PCs and I'm not watching movies, the traffic gets parsed between the two 5 Ghz channels with no effort on my part....Since I bought the router, I have seen a definite change in clarity of videos, everything is faster, I never drop wifi signal in any floor/corner of my house and I am able to get over 60MBPS download over WIFI from the First floor of my house where as the router sitting in the coat closet near the entry way on a 100MB pipe."
