Hi,

Would also like to know about the impact on health when it comes to the choice between 2.4 and 5 Ghz.

Thanks.

Something I have noticed in your videos is that you often say "gigahert" instead of "gigahertz" when you use the word in a singular sense. However, Hertz is named after Heinrich Hertz (a 19th century German Physicist), and "hertz" is both the plural and singular term for the unit of frequency that it represents. I don't know if you knew this already or not, but I just thought I would bring it to your attention in case you didn't (and I mean no offense at all; I love your videos).

Yea, it's more of a dialect thing. I try and pronounce everything perfectly, but I'm human, DOH!

What about the new standard 802.11ac ?
And you can also go with homeplugs instead of wired ;)

Rodney, what do you think about having a stronger wireless in your home if you think about your health, Electromagnetic radiation and stuff like that - greets ASZHanazaki
