support of 802.11g compact Flash in SB

Fri Aug 05, 2005 6:27 am

hello

is there anybody tried to see if Wifi 802.11g compact flash is working in a SB??? Linksys is doing one, ref WCF54G....I'm ready to buy one, but I want to be sure it's working.
Using 802.11b is more and more a very big problem, because all users are obliged th share the poor bandwith 11 Mb max...
I have 802.11 g routers and blades in my Laptops, it's a pity when we share documents.... :cry:

thanks for your help

If you search the forums for this topic you will see that it is considerably cheaper to by a dedicated b bridge and set it up on a different channel to the g network than it is to buy a g CF card for the SB. And you don't need the bandwidth of g to stream 2 channel audio.

Good answer. I have a linsys switch/router b/g I do'nt use today, I could build a b network with different SSID and bridge it the my native g network? Is it OK?

For info, this compact flash (Linksys 802.11g WCF54G) has a cost of 87 Euros....not a very big amount.....and installation is much more simple no?

I don't think that will work because the SB doesn't have the drivers installed.
But the Linksys WET54G bridge works great and is about the same price and you can attach other devices to.

Agreed that you don't need 802.11g for the speed but what about the range? I live in a little townhouse and I can't get my old fashioned 802.11b M500 to connect right in my garage. Connects fine as soon as I step in the house. I'm hoping hooking it up to a 802.11g bridge will give me some extra distance on my range. Sure would be nice to use thsi baby in the garage!
