On Roku's compare page it shows the 3800R as having a 802.11ac dual-band but has no check-mark next to b/g/n. I just want to double check that it is backwards compatible with my NetGear dual band b/g/n router. Also will it work on either the 2.4ghz or 5ghz channel?
Would the better receiver on the Stick+ (3810R) work like a range extender? It says it has advanced wireless that offers up to 4x range. I wasn't consider the Stick+ since I'm not using 4k.
2.4 is better if a long distance from the router. I got range extenders so I could run 5ghz for all my TV's and I use the 2.4 for the phones and computers since I rarely if ever stream on them. You lose speed with the extenders, but even with the loss, it's still a quicker stream than the 2.4
