View Full Version : Newbie Question : 802.11g

I just received my Squeezebox last week. I have it attached to a Linksys
Wireless- G Router. (WAP54G).
It works GREAT! I also only use the wireless to cruse the net while on the
deck or other parts of the house. I don't see that mush if any slow down.
The setup is pretty much idiot proof (or I got lucky).

So far GREAT product and supper software. I do most of the controls with my
IPOQ and TelCanto Pocket PC Client. I've used the remote just for setup and
internet radio. The TelCanto software is real cool. Just sit back and tap
out your play list on your PDA!

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.
