108Mbps wireless 802.11g?

Advantageous high speed Internet, thanks to 108 Mbps wireless transfer rate (802.11 Super-G from Atheros)


Um. What's the catch? I assume you'd have to buy some hyperexpensive router or something to get transfer speeds like that, or it'd be massively unstable, or something. Anybody?

2 x 54G.

Essentially, it just establishes 2 connections to the router there by (essentially) doubling the speed.

You'd need one of these routers though:

Essentially its pretty dumb for internet use. You are gonna max out your internet speed at whatever connection you have. 1.2MBPS, 3MBPS, 5MBPS, etc, etc...
Not 108MBPS.

I suppose if you had a T1 it might go significantly faster...

Internal network speed would be cool.

Question (since I just bought a LinkSys 108Mbps 802.11g+ broadband router from amazon.co.uk - only £60)... do I need an 802.11g+ PCI card to take advantage of the double rate of data transfer or will a standard 11g card be able to make use of the higher rate? In other words, is it pointless to buy an 11g+ router to use with only 11g cards?

Hmmm well seeing as I just bought 1 of "Linksys WAG54GUK Wireless 4 Port ADSL Modem Gateway with Firewall" ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASI ... 65-0411835 in New & Used for £75+£5 p&p; I didn't see any others as cheaply with built-in modem) I suppose my question is rather redundant... but there might be others out there wondering the same who could benefit from my experience. In which case, to answer my own question, yes, you need to buy a specifically double-speed PCI/PCMCIA card too.

Anyway I hope to be happy with this and now I've finally bought the thing... these forums should be a bit quieter ;-)

This is true.
