I used a 802.11b access point for my SB3 and I had no problem.
Now I upgrade with a Netgear DG834GTIT that support both 802.11b and 802.11g.
The access point can work as 802.11g or 802.11b/802.11g together. When the access point works with booth 802.11b/802.11g protocols the SB3 hangs after few minutes, and I have to reset manually (disconnecting from power).
When the Access point is set to work with 802.11g only, the SB3 works without problems. Unfortunately I have a laptop (where I'm writing) that works on 802.11b...

Is there a workaround on this problem?
Thanks!

I believe that if an 802.11b device gets onto the wireless network then all devices on that network must operate at 802.11b.
So, if your SB was running happily at 802.11g and then the network switched down to 802.11b, then that may be confusing it.

Forcing your new router to use 802.11b will fix that - not what you want to hear.

Alternatively, you might add/change the laptop wireless card to
something that supports g connections.

That's not exactly true. Adding a 802.11b device to a pure 802.11g
network will reduce throughput, but the amount it does depends on the
amount of traffic the 802.11b device is sending.

Yes, I think you are right!
The SB3 crashes when the laptop 802.11b get connected to the network. Otherwise it works normally.
The router have no options to work only 802.11b. The solution should be to make the laptop work on 802.11g or turn off its wireless.

Thanks!
