Hi Everyone:

          There is a possibility we may be rearranging the setup of your wireless network equipment.  We currently have the 802.11-g Linksys Wireless Broadband Router connected to a modest pc running at 1.2GHz and the wireless running on an older machine with a Celeron 400Mhz chip.  At this time, we are considering switching this around (e.g. running the wireless router to the older pc and the wireless network adapter to the newer pc).  With this point in mind, will the age or vintage of the pc running at 400Mhz cause any degradation in performance of the wireless router?

          Any shared thoughts or ideas to this question will be appreciated.

          Thank you

          George
