If the big concern is network speed and you already have a G-router, just go
buy a B-router, just for the SB and other B devices you might have. B
routers are pretty cheap now. That's what I did... All of my B devices,
including my SB, are running on the B router, and the G items are running on
the G router. It's not necessary since G will support B, but this is only
if you have an issue w/speed. Even when I had all of my B devices (5 in
all) on the G router along with my G laptop, I never saw a difference. So
it's really up to you what you decide to do. Just thought I'd toss in my
two pennies. Cheers.

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.

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?

It will have to be a suck it and see. If i'm not happy then as you say,
just buy a 11b router. My office is right above the room I want the
music in so it shouldn't be a problem.

Lets see... we have 5 cordless phones, 1 wireless network, 2 mobile
phones, 2 PMR446 handhelds, and a wireless TV transmitter. I wonder how
all this effects health?
