I'm looking to replace my D-Link DGL-4300 router with one that supports running on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands at the same time. There are a few out there, but if anyone has any experience with such products, I'd like to hear about them. Thanking you in advance.

only good one is DIR-825 from D-Link.

tried the Linksys WRT600? I believe that was the model number, I had nothing but trouble with that router, returned it after few days.

Then I settled with DGL-4500, it is dual band, just not at the same time. DIR-825 at that time was very hard to get, and costed more then 300 bucks.

DIR-825 is about 170-180 now, don't even look at anything else out there.

Thanks for the heads up. It's actually $130 at Newegg (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833127258&Tpk=DIR-825)right now.

Edit: And ordered. ;)
