I've heard that g standard was used by military, but not anymore. Not too sure where that came from. :p

There is also g+, which is 100Mbits/s
Urr... that's 108Mb (twice the speed of G which is 54Mb).

Yep. It works the same way D-Link's (and TI's) 22Mbit 802.11b worked. Basically it's a compression standard.

You mean before it got to us? Not likely since it runs in the public 2.4 GHz spectrum... :)

AFAIK, the g standard is compatible with both 802.11a and 802.11b. To get 54 or 108 Mbps , it needs the 5-6 Ghz spectrum, which I think is reserved for the military in many countries.

The G standard is not compatible with the A standard. The G standard is only backward compatible with the B standard. You do not need 5-6 GHz to run at 54 or 108 Mb as 802.11G operates in the public 2.4 GHz range. 108Mb is achieved via compression, not by more throughput.

a is like b but runs in the 5GHz spectrum
Actually, A is nothing like B. The purpose of A was to allow faster throughput. However, the problem that occured was that it has a shorter range. G, on the other hand, provided the speed and A but the range of B.

hmmm, I didnt know that. I thought g was a standard that uses both the 2.4Ghz and th 5Ghz spectrum. Thanks for the heads up, Henyman and Reg.

It works the same way you get 22Mb via 802.11B.

wireless 11g is 54Mbps and operates in the 2.4 GHz band, 11a is 108MBps and operates in the 5 GHz band

wireless 11b is 11MBps and in the 2.4GHz band as well

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
