============ (2005-05-12) ==============

Wireless-G networking is hypothetically almost 5 times faster than Wireless-B.


For most users, Wireless-B (802.11b) is already faster than your Internet connection (so it won't help you much for using the web), but if you have multiple users working at the same time, or you want to speed up transfers between your home devices, Wireless-G is the way to go.

Wireless G vs. Ethernet

802.11b has a speed up to 11 mbps (megabits per second)
(Note: cable modem service typically averages no more than 4 to 5 mbps.)

802.11g [Wireless G] allows speed up to 54 mbps (depending on connection strength;
mine is probably halved to 26 mbps).

Ethernet is the fastest wired network protocol, with connection speeds of
10 megabits per second (10 mbps) to 100 mbps (or higher in some cases). Uses Category 5 [Cat-5] ethernet cabling.
