For anyone who already has the device - can you confirm if 802.11ac run on both 2.4GHz & 5GHz, or is it limited only to the higher 5GHz band?

    802.11ac only operates on 5GHz, that is part of the specification. 802.11g only operates in 2.4 GHz. 802.11n operates in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. This Time Capsule supports all of those options simultaneously, so any device supporting any of those connection types will work with this router.

  • 802.11ac specification is 5GHz only. 2.4GHz is only for b/g/n. 5GHz is for a/ac/n.
