Does 802.11-b wireless routers have the same transmission range as 802.11-g wireless routers?
Posted on 2007-10-07
I am wondering if all wireless broadband routers do not have the same default transmisstion range. The reason I am bring this up is because I have recently upgraded my network hardware upon the assumption or premise that 802.11-g wireless routers will transmit RF waves at a longer range than compared to 802.11-b routers. As it turns out, both transmit between 30-35 feet. Given this, I assume the "true" transmission range actually comes from the antennnaes and has nothing to do with the series or generation of the router being used. However, is this conclusion true though?
Any shared input on this question will be appreciated.
