    802.11b vs. 802.11g?

    Sorry--just wanted to answer my own question. I read this on
    the FAQ on the SlimDevices site:
    "If you have an 802.11g network, adding any 802.11b device
    (including Squeezebox) will cause the overall performance of
    your network to slow down. The amount of that slowdown
    depends on the devices in your network, but our tests
    indicate that a mixed 802.11b/802.11g network will see
    overall performance reduced to about half of the full rated
    802.11g performance."

    So I guess I have my answer. Sorry for posting before
    reading the FAQ completely...

    802.11b vs. 802.11g?

    Oops. Will there be any easy way for existing Squeezebox uers to
    upgrade to 802.11g? I just bought all new 802.11g equipment for my home
    and now the SqueezeBox is the only 802.11b device left....
