    That is strange since 5ghz should be approximately double the distance but if the X can't use that frequency then that would explain how you get better performance with 2.4ghz. Most people do not have dual band (G for iNet & N draft 2 for streaming video) with MIMO and QOS.

    If I understand this article correctly then 5ghz support will be available in Android 2.2

    5 is double the frequency, but not double the distance. Higher frequencies have a harder time penetrating objects like walls. N may have better distance than G, but I think 2.4N has better distance than 5N.

    This is why you can hear the bass from a stereo farther away than the treble. Or why they use ultra-low frequencies to communicate with far away submarines etc.
