I'm looking at upgrading my network. I've been looking at some dual band n routers but they're new enough that there aren't many reviews for them. Anyone here have any advice/input on them?

If you don't mind me asking, why do you need dual band?

im in a large apartment complex with over 30 networks around me (and those are only the ones I can see). My network drops every now and then and i think that if I used the 5Ghz spectrum I would get far less interference.

Now I understand. That is a problem with wireless networking it can cause problems with other wireless networks that are around the same area. This is the first time I have came across dual-band but I would research it before I would inter-grade it with my network. See what the internet brings up about it and let us know. I'm more than happy to help.
