Although you can mix the different formats, if you have two adaptars one 802.11b and the other 802.11g, the "g" will default to the speed of the "b." I would however recommend not mixing if you can avoid it. In addition, I would stick with the same brands of adapters. The reason is that, as an example, D-Link 802.11b adapters (the AirPlus models) use propreitary software/hardware that allows this specific brand to transmit/receive at up to 22mbps versus 11mbps for "regular" 802.11b adapters from other vendors. Hope this helps
