    Did not know that 802.11N was available on the Huawei S7-104 BB
    Is this for the S7 Slim?
    The additional speed would be nice, As my home wireless is N!

    i think this topic is at least confusing N and 5.0 Ghz is two different beasts the Ideos s7 wifi is not dual band so no 5.0 Ghz afaik
    however it is N

    xda-developers - View Single Post - Broadcom BCM4329 2.4ghz or dual band 2.4 + 5ghz?

    Didn't bother to check out the spec yet, but this is probably your answer here:

    The Huawei is not advertised anywhere as having 5.0 GHz support. It's listed as b/g/n and not a/b/g/n, which means only 2.4 GHz.

    A device can be 802.11n compliant without supporting the 5 GHz band. 90% of 802.11n devices fall into this category (b/g/n only).

    ive been trying to open the s7 and by looking around ive found a round rubber piece that has a 5gz connecor on the back? if you could get a broken laptop theres some antennas inside the screen thats probably connected next to the ram, but im not sure if it has to be a 5gz antenna?

    dont quote me on any of this since im not sure, some of it i learnt from the taking apart the s7 thread, but i havent been able to open it!

    There is no such thing as an "N band." The 802.11n protocol will work on either 2.4GHz or 5GHz.

    I think the confusion arises from the fact that 802.11b and 802.11g were 2.4GHz-only protocols, and 802.11a was a 5GHz-only protocol, so the former (wireless-B and wireless-G) always implied the 2.4GHz band and the latter, the 5GHz band. The same is not true of 802.11n.
