View Full Version : 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...

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....
