Yes, the squeeze should work fine, however it only supports 802.11b so your
network will be in a hybrid mode operating below maximum 802.11g speeds.

If this is not accepteable then purchase a hardwired squeezebox and a
separate 802.11g bridge to get the squeezebox onto your wireless network.

Subject: [slim] Newbie Question : 802.11g

Thinking about buying a squeezebox but cannot any info on the docs or FAQ in
relation to 802.11g.

I have a linksys 802.11g access point running 64bit WEP encryption and was
wondering if squeezebox will work fine with one of these?

Thanks for the answers everyone. I'm not too bothered about a potential
speed drop as all I use the wireless network for is surfing the net
with a laptop while sitting in front of the fire!

I will check to see if it's a split design though as someone suggested.
