    Hello,

    I have both wireless G and wireless N clients.

    For performance, should I create different SSIDs for each frequency.

    I am going to be upgrading from an E3000 linksys router.

    On the E3000 I set 1 frequency for the N clients and 1 frequency for the G clients.

    Is this a good thing to do?

    You should have different SSID:s for the 2.4 and the 5 GHz band.
    I have the 2.4 GHz band for b/g and the 5 GHz for n-only.
    Do the same regarding channel with the help of inSSIDer , set it to a fixed channel Auto.

    Just to be clear. 802.11g devices are 2.4 GHz only. 802.11n devices can be single or dual band, i.e. 2.4 and/or 5 GHz.

    That said, it is best to assign a unique SSID to each band's radio so that dual-band devices can connect to the desired band.
