I replaced my router with a dual-band wireless-N router specifically to see if I could do away with consistent interference from my microwave (shut down the wireless connection every time). The new router has a higher bandwidth than usual and is set up with two different networks. The SD failed to recognize the second network, though (all security currently turned off), so I was wondering if the SD was limited to a particular bandwidth so it cannot find new network (trying to get it to operate at 5 GHZ)? Or is it, like most things with this product, more complicated than that? Don't see anything about it in the specs.

All current/announced SB products are compatible only with 802.11b and g (2.4GHz). They won't work with an 802.11n router in "n-only" mode (i.e. 5GHz only), but most (all?) current n routers are dual g/n, and will work fine with the SB in that mode.

"...won't work with an 802.11n router in "n-only" mode..."
Very disappointing! Makes you wonder why the Duet user manual (dated 2008) says under System Requirements: "802.11b/g/n compatible wireless network". They should delete the "n".
