View Full Version : squeezebox and squeezebox 2 at 54 or 104 mbps? (kdf/paulwilliamson??)

Hi

I am currently running a Netgear DG834G with a card (wirelessly - 104 mbps) for a laptop and wired PC. I also run a Squeezbox wireless, which runs at a meagre 11 mbps, meaning that the rest of the system has to run at 11mbps. I was going to buy a Squeezebox2, which runs at 54 mbps, to run together with the existing Squeezebox, in another room.

I think if I have a wireless adaptor to run from the squeezebox (i.e. as though it were a wired box), then I can run the adaptor at 54 mbps, to match the squeezebox 2.

In which case I should probably buy a squeezebox 2, wireless, and a wireless adaptor for the existing squeezebox.

Any thoughts on whether this would work, and which adaptor I should buy?

Thanks.

Damian.

This will work. Can't offer any suggestions as to the best bridge to get. Getting another netgear product will limit compatibility issues, so perhaps you should look into something from then.

SB2 supports bridging, so if you are able to run a wired connection from your
SB1 to the SB2, you can use that as the bridge and save yoruself a few $$.
