This is very tempting,

It won't help with my poor throughput, but it would be nice to have better WiFi.

Is this the same one that Apple is selling for $299 Apple and Amazon has for $199

I don't see any model numbers, but they appear to be the same?

Seems like a good deal and I am looking to upgrade my wholes system since fiber is coming this summer to my neighborhood.

The Walmart/Amazon 2-pack are dual-band units.

The Apple 2-pack are tri-band units.

What I'd like to know is if these are simultaneous dual-band, or one or the other. Like my AEBS, I'd like to use both bands at the same time.

Like the post below on wifi vs wired -- I still dont know what "better" is. If your wifi now works perfectly 100% of the time, but lets just say at 3 MBps, I have no idea how this would make it "better".

I dont know anything about them, but a quick glance at the linksys site shows a "tri" band model that costs more. Didnt seem to elaborate on what that meant.

Assuming this one is dual band is 2.4 and 5 GHZ. AC2600

In my case better is 100% coverage of a strong WiFi signal, even if the initial throughput to the modem is slow.

I've got 50' of Cat5e from the router to one Mac because the WiFi is weak in that room. I can stream to it fairly well, but very poorly to another Mac almost next to it on WiFi. I could get a switch to put both on wire, but the means— more wire.

Watching the little WiFi signal strength arcs dance from 3 to 1 and back gets old.
