I was planning in upgrading my wireless network from 802.11b to 802.11g, but I have heard about a new wireless standard SuperG ? What is it ? How much faster is it ? ...

Is this it, or will there be yet more upgrades (something faster than SuperG) in the wireless networking standards in the next few months ?

Super G is 108 Mbps instead of the "regular g" standard at 54Mbps. Super G is available now, use a search engine to find super g products. Of course you know that with any pertaining to I.T. , something new always pops up.

I could be wrong - but I don't think super G is a standard.  I believe it's achieved through different mechanisms - mostly related to compression - they can squeeze more data through the pipe by compressing it.

pseudocyber is correct about the compression techniques on super G, with speed through squeezing the size down.

And yes there will be upgrades as this technology continues to evolve and find it's place in mainstream use.

So it might be a smart desision to stick with what I have, 802.11b for now untill there are some new standards set that become more mainstream ?

In my opinion, as a rule of thumb, it's wise to stay with standards based technologies UNLESS you have a special need that can only be met with proprietary technology.
