Just curiosity. Ive got a NF4V which is stuck with single band and AC. Ive seen these on trademe. Clearly I can buy H659 router for $15-30 due to the number of vodafone installs.

 

But just curious if I could turn my old router into a dual band AC, OR use it as a repeater which could be placed in the one area that 5ghz may struggle.

no. attaching one of these to your modem will do nothing for you.

fair enough.

 

i think if anything an AC repeater plugged into the wall in line of sight down the hall would be best. especially if I have a router that could use beaming to get the 5ghz acwifi in that direction?

I beg to differ you ask the same questions but using different words
I would do some googling on what/how makes Wifi work and come back with questions worthy of asking
Sorry to be blunt, but your question is plain bazaar 

 

BTW - NF4V = 11gn only (2.4Ghz)
11ac = 5Ghz, which the NF4V is not capable of

Please stop starting new threads related to this subject... If you do, I'll just remove them going forward.

 

Also, moved to correct topic and locked.
