WiFi compatibility

Easy question.  I'm considering buying Ultra or Streaming Stick +, but my WiFi is 802.11n (not 802.11ac).  Looking at the specs, it appears these devices only connect with 802.11ac.  Is that the case?


Thank you

Re: WiFi compatibility

I have the Stick +. It has no problem connecting to my 802.11n modem, nor do my two older units. 802.11n is back compatible with earlier 802.11 versions. Of course you only get the speeds possible with the older protocol version.
