*450 Mbps is the maximum aggregate wireless signal rate derived from IEEE 802.11n standard specifications achievable using three streams of 150 Mbps each. 1300 Mbps is the maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE 802.11ac standard specifications achievable using three streams of 433 Mbps each. Actual data throughput and range will vary depending upon network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction and network overhead. 1750 Mbps is the maximum wireless signal rate achieved when using two bands (5 GHz + 2.4 GHz) of three streams simultaneously. Maximum speed and range is achievable when used with same enhanced mode technology.
