Question about Gateway Belkin 54g Wireless DSL/Cable Router (DHF5D72304)
I want to know if an ' N ' range wireless router is compatible with my pc. which is 3 yrs old and has wireless capabilities, as had a belkin 'G' router connected but kept 'dropping out' . i am starting to use the net more and use remote log in to use the office computer more & more.
All of the "N" routers I have seen are backward compatible to the 54 Mb "G" standard. An "N" router on your network will mot likely not work any better than the old "G" router did (unless there was something wrong with it) if you continue to use the old "G" card in the PC.
To take advantage of the greater range and other technical advances that the "N" router offers, an "N" card should used in the PC, too.
To maximize speed and reliability of any wireless "G" network, decrease as much a s possible, the distance between the "G" router and wireless PC.
An open air, "line of sight" path is best. A path through gypsum board, wood, foil backed insulation, brick, concrete, steel goes from "OK" to "very difficult". Basically, the thickness and type of material can affect the signal. The harder it is for you to drill through the material - so is the difficulty of passing a wireless signal through (more or less).
Minimize interference by reducing or removing any cordless 2.4 Ghz telephones, intercoms, etc. These devices *can* significantly reduce the range of wireless G networks. Try it yourself by unplugging the base and removing the battery from a handset to see if this is a source of interference for your location.
