11a, 11g or dual router with 11a + 11g

by jamestony / December 13, 2006 11:05 AM PST

Thinking about going wireless with my home pc and xbox 360. But not sure which type of router to go with. I read the g is the standard, a is good for streaming video and music. Which is exactly what I want to do, stream from the pc to the xbox 360(mp3 and video). Any suggestions on which type of router and some suggested brands if you don't mind. Thanks in advance.

I don't run into 802.11a equipment anymore. I wouldn't consider it something to fret over.

I streamed with 802.11b

Remember that most internet connections are less than that. Certainly music is fine at 802.11b and more.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
