Is the SMCD3GN a dual channel router?

I am looking to find out if the SMCD3GN gateway is a 2 channel (2.4GHz/5GHz) router.  With my current setup with a single channel router whenever I watch Netflix it kills my wife's internet.  Having a dual channel router would solve this issue as my wireless bridge (D Link) is dual channel so video would be routed on the 5 GHz band.  Otherwise I have to purchase a dual channel router.

No, it's 2.4ghz only.

 

It will work in B,G,N or a variety of mixed modes - as long as those modes are 2.4ghz.

Reading the data sheet it doesn't look like it. http://www.smc.com/files/AN/DS_SMCD3GN-RES.pdf

You can have the SMCD3GN run in bridge mode where it just acts as a modem then continue to use any router you like.

Call rogers 1-888-Rogers-1 and ask them to do it for you. Should only take them a moment.
