Default Belkin Dual-Band Wireless A+G Networking

"The alphabet soup of wireless has not gotten any less complicated since the first 802.11b product shipped so many years ago. Gone are the 1-2 Mbps speeds (if you can call them that) of the past. Now with the 802.11g standard, sharing files and just abusing the network is far easier. This expansion of wireless has also yielded consequences. The unlicensed 2.4 GHz spectrum has become increasingly overcrowded. Everything from wireless networks to cordless phones sits in this range. Even the lowly microwave can wreak havoc on some poor unsuspecting wireless signal.

Does this mean all is lost? That we will be subjected to just deal with it? No! Actually, by going back a few years to the 802.11a standard, we can once again bring harmony to the wireless spectrum. The 802.11a standard operates in the 5GHz range which does not see the interference found at 2.4GHz. What 802.11a lacks is coverage area. Belkin has decided to combine the 802.11g standard with that of 802.11a. What they claim this does is enable the user to take advantage of the positive characteristics of both channels while minimizing their downsides. Today I have in front of me Belkinís Wireless A+G Router, PCI card, and PCMCIA notebook adapter. I shall do my best to see if this converged product is a worthy competitor to the traditional G setup, or just a sloppy patch job."
