802.11b is 11 megabit and that's above most if not all internet connections most of us have.
So while there may be some gain, it won't be much unless you are not getting 11 megabit.
Here is my scenario:
1 PC at home. Centrino-2 (and all its implications) 802.11n wifi capable
6Mbps DSL dowstream802.11n draft
802.11b grade wireless modem router (combo box)
Distance PC to modem.router: 30ft. No obstruction, no interference
My question is then:
If I change my 802.11b to a n draft, will I see a noticeable increase in my web browing response time? Faster downloads?
With all things being equal, same PC, same DSL line, same ol' websites, if I "swap out" the wifi piece of the overall connection to a faster one (b to n) will I get more throughput, better performance?
