  3. Re: Dual band router - Only connecting to one band - HughesNet Internet

    Ah ... 2.4 Ghz and 5.8 Ghz wifi bands. <slaps forehead>! The 2.4 Ghz stuff is clearly 2.4 Ghz, but the 5.8 Ghz stuff ... seems to be from 5.18 GHz - 5.7 GHz. Confusing, at least to me.

    If you cannot restrict physical access to the system, then there isn't anything that can be done. With physical access, anything is possible.
