yeah but whats with all these advertisements that claim certain bands provide 54mbps and now the new 118mbps... over the normal 11mbps speeds???
54mpbs is the "g" flavor. (11mpbs is "b".)
118mbps is Netgear's proprietary "Super G" technology, which is currently the subject of some dispute. Other wireless vendors are claiming that the "Super G" equipment unduly interferes with other 802.11x networks operating in the vicinity.
If the world isn't making sense to you, you're either drinking too much or not drinking enough.
