Alien vs HD: Coverage wider on all bands?


  • I currently have an HD. Should I expect greater coverage on all bands (B G N), or only greater on X?

    The specs are shown differently (which is annoying):
    HD: 26 dB
    Alien: 2.4 GHz: 23 dBm per chain, 5 GHz 19 dBm per chain (low band)/ 20 dBm per chain (high band)


  • @Edward-Salm Multiple users are reporting and posting videos about the coverage being much greater than they had with their HD system, but every environment is different and depending on how many meshpoints you are using, the range of the HD can go quite some distance. Personally, I went from using a router and 1 mesh point in my house to a single Alien and the single alien is give me better coverage and performance.


  • @UI-Brett Thank you. That's what I needed to hear. Currently, I use an HD with two mesh points, but the signal really only needs a little extra push out each end, and the mesh points don't deliver the same throughput as to the router directly.
