Wireless router options???
Posted on 2004-09-24
I need to set up a wireless network at my home with one wired pc and the other wireless.
With so many options available in the market, I am confused as to which one should I go for as I need to have a less expensive but effective network at my home
1) Linksys has Wireless-G (802.11g) and Wireless-B(802.11b) options. The G ones are expensive one but offer data rate of 54 Mbps as compared to the B ones with data rate of 11 Mbps.
2) Does the Network PC Card and the router have to be from the same company??
3)Is Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B Cable/DSL Router and Linksys WPC11 Wireless-B Notebook Adapter
a good option??
4) At present I am using Linksys BEFSR81 and really satisfied with the Internet connection speed. But I could not find the data transfer rate for this so I can not compare it with the wireless routers.???
Any suggestions please..
