Re: How does the wireless range of 54g compare to...

The range of 54g products is the same as 802.11b. They both operate in the same 2.4GHz frequency. Both 54g and 802.11b have better wireless range than 802.11a.

Whilst online my connection went off using my belkin 54g, and wont let me connect again as it says, 'The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network'...Why...

That message means that your wireless security key has been changed to a different password. All you need to do is go to Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Network, then delete all the listed wireless profiles there. Now click on Add > Add a Network that is in range of the computer > Choose your network and connect. Make sure to type in a correct network key. That should do it.

Internet access problem with a Linksys 54g router

Try setting the default gateway on the laptop to the ip address of your ICS gateway machine. Some routers separate the wireless and LAN connections on different subnets.

Try comparing your laptops ip information with that of one of the working wired computers. You can do this by going to Start up to run and type cmd then click "ok"

At the black prompt screen type "ipconfig" without the "".

You want to compare the IP Address, Submet Mask, and Default Gateway.

If one has an ip of 192.168.1.* and the other has 192.168.0.* then the wireless and wired are on seperate networks.

If the subnet masks are something like and they are on seperate subnets. Both should be fixable by putting in the same default gateway.

For example if your ICS gateway is then set that as the default gatway on the wireless laptop. This can be done by going to start >> Control Panel >> Network Connections then right click your wireless connection and goto properties then double click on the "Internet Protocol (tcp/ip)" option. This will list all of your ip information (if its static) if its dynamic (ip gotten from router) you can still click "Use the following DNS server address" and set preffered dns to the gateway ICS ip. Or click "Advanced" and click Add under Default Gateways and add the gateway ICS ip there.

All wireless products are subject to radio interference. The performance is a direct result of the operating environment. Other products that use the same frequency can drastically reduce the performance of the wireless product. Try changing the operating channel or moving the wireless Access Point.

Really see 54 Mbps with 54g?

As with any wireless protocol, 54g has overhead associated with it that limits performance. While signaling data rates of up to 54 Mbps may be achieved, like most shared media (e.g. Ethernet) throughput will be significantly less. There are two scenarios for 54g performance. In an environment with only 54g clients, throughput can exceed 24 Mbps. This performance is equivalent to that of 802.11a, although 54g is usually available over a greater range. The second scenario is where 802.11b clients are present. RTS/CTS flow control must be used to allow 802.11b clients to recognize and establish communications with 802.11g access points. This leads to delays in transmission and drops peak throughput to about 10 Mbps. 54g performance is still well in excess of the maximum measured speeds of 4-5 Mbps for 802.11b. The use of RTS/CTS is important because it provides determinism to the wireless network, ensuring a minimum bandwidth for each user. Like Ethernet, 802.11 LANs normally use a ג?œcarrier sense media accessג? mechanism to signal transmission without asking for permission from the network. As the network becomes highly loaded, collisions occur more frequently and the network can become saturated with packet retransmission attempts that eventually make it impossible for any data to get through. RTS/CTS provides a more formalized flow-control mechanism that avoids this problem.

What is 54g?

54g is Broadcom's maximum performance implementation of the draft specification for IEEE 802.11g wireless networks. This technology is expected to quickly become the next mainstream wireless LAN technology because it works faster and farther, is backward compatible with 802.11b and is affordable. Authorized products displaying the 54g logo use Broadcom's 54g wireless LAN chipset and ensures that products are designed to be completely interoperable at maximum performance with other 54g products and are compatible with the draft IEEE 802.11g specification.
