alritey, so as you might already know from my previous thread my old linksys router crapped out. so tonight at about 1 am i decided that since i was already at wally*mart taking back a wireless security camera i picked up just for fun, i was going to buy a new router. they had some pretty decent looking ones for what seemed like reasonable prices. the only ones they had were linksys and belkin, and all of them were 802.11 g. but both brands also has a '125 high-speed mode' which supposedly runs 35% faster than normal 54g or something else. it all sounded like a load of bs, but whatever, i just got 80 bucks back, so why not? it came to about 75 dollars so oh well. all that runs through it though are two laptops with wireless pcmcia cards and two xboxs that are wired strait to the router. one of the wireless cards is an 'instant wireless pc card' and the other is an 802.11b wireless pc card. what im wondering is: does the diff between the b and g router affect the wireless ONLY, or does it also have a difference for the wired as well? and does the 125 high-speed have a difference for the wired also? after checking out the box and some of the settings for the router i realized that the 125 highspeed only made a difference between the 125 router and a 125 wireless card. or at least thats what i have come to understand. wow, im such a babbler. i just babbled a whole effin pointless story. oh well. thanks for any help, and thanks for reading my poorly narrarated story lol.
