G & M Type Modems

by haz_smurf / October 20, 2012 3:11 AM PDT

Roger's (in Canada) uses a "G-Type" Modem, Bell uses an "M-Type" Modem. Bell says their modem is better and has better range (which I agree with).

Is the M-Type Modem better and why??

Thanks in advance.

Which company sold you.

I wonder if you are talking about 801.11n (notice it's not a M) versus 802.11g.

The truth about WiFi is the location matters more than the 802.11a, b, g or n. Only those new to the game would write the 802.11n rules over all.

Hello Bob,

Maybe it was an "N" rather than an "M".

Funny thing is, I can't get reception from my Rogers modem 30' within my home, yet I can get my neighbours Bell modem signal which is more than 150' away in a condo next door to our home. Very frustrating indeed !!

The numbers you mentioned in your reply (and thank you for your reply), really doesn't mean much to me. Like talking quantum physics ! Sorry.
