noted by going to:
1) MIMO based routers
2) home made as well as store bought antenna extenders
3) adding a WAP to the weak spots
Having a "B" device will bring the overall wireless throughput of a "G" network down to "B" speeds. However there is new technology brewing to segregate the adapters and to allow their advertised transfer rates.
I don't really know that much about wireless routers. Right now I have a 802.11b linksys with a 4 port switch. I want something faster, with a wider range, decent firewall protection, that still has ports for wired networking. The big thing is I have mostly g network cards and I dont really want to purchase new ones. I dont even know if you can increase your range by upgrading from b to g.I have been looking at the belkin pre-n, the linksys wrt54 gx, and the rangemax. If anyone has a suggestion or any advice please give it.
