Hi!

I have a Netgear what is locked to 802.11g. But it looks like it's not powerful enough.

Everytime my daughter use MSN with a webcam or watch a Youtube movie from her WiFi connected PC the SB3 goes nuts.

I also have an old Symbol Spectrum24 with two anntenas and very god range laying around. But it's only 802.11b.

Should I go for a dedicated old AP or a new Powerline adapter.

I mostly stream flac.

Kind Regards
/Bernt

Using a dedicated AP has worked well for me in the past, just make sure they're on different (non-overlapping) channels and that you don't have DHCP servers enabled on both.

Don't confuse Power over Ethernet with powerline networking, it's
something else altogether.
A dedicated AP sounds like your best option.
