I just got the GL-AR750S (Slate) and plan to use it in WISP mode to share Wifi Internet access with wifi clients. Since this device is only dual-band, would I get the most performance if I use one band exclusively to connect to the wifi internet and the other band exclusively for wifi clients? If I use the same band for internet and clients, my guess is that performance will be lower since the single radio has to time-share between all clients and the internet connection.
I was thinking of connecting the 5Ghz band to the internet and using the 2.4Ghz band for clients. Reasoning is that 2.4Ghz is more battery friendly for clients. But I’m open to arguments for the opposite.
