which is better, wireless g or mixed mode?

I have a netgear router and was wondering which is faster to have the wireless set on. Wireless g only or mixed b and g? There is also a setting called "auto108mbps." Would that one be the fastest? It's a Netgear WPN824 by the way.

Re: which is better, wireless g or mixed mode?

If all your wireless devices use G cards then I dont see why you would need mixed mode.

G or auto108mbps will be your fastest depending on what your devices can recognize.

this is weird because i just went through and changed this setting on my router.

You can hate if you want to, but you'll just be wasting your time.

So g only and auto are the same? The only wireless devices are my macbook pro and my ipod touch. I'm guessing they are both g.

Auto is super G 108mbps
G is only 54mbps

I would try auto and see if both devices like it if they dont then try the G setting.

oooooo......"super G". Both devices work on both settings but I just wanted the fastest. I thought that n signal was 108mbps.

108Mbps is the MIMO(multiple in multiple out) version of G. MIMO has multiple antennae so you can have upstream data and downstream data simultaneously. Theoretically giving you two streams of 54.

The last time I had this much fun, I was driving the banana. Of course, back in my day we called it denting the bacon.

Re: which is better, wireless g or mixed mode?

No.. 108 megs is 802.11n or 802.11g in MIMO. If you have a G card, then run G. If you have a mixture of B and G cards, then run mixed. I think this excerpt from the product page is funny -
"Wirelessly stream music, make Internet phone calls and surf the web faster and further"
I do that with an 802.11b router which is in my basement. I can stream music to my garage about 50 feet away.

Re: which is better, wireless g or mixed mode?

I had the same prob on my router, the verizon guy configured it on mixed mode...g and b and it was slow as hell, seemed like it would stay on b all the time, SQT helped me fix it and set it to G only...works fast as hell now...

That's funny. I do the same thing though. I had to go to staples for some posterboard last night. They were pimping some pc cleaning service for $30 or something. The lady stopped talking when I pulled out my Microsoft ID.

Lol my friend works at Staples but knows shit about computers. I was going in to get some stuff from him and saw a lady ask him about the computers they have. He turned around and handed her to me to give her advice even though i dont work there.The other staff were giving me wierd looks so one of them comes over to ask why i was helping her and he stepped in. He started going on about how you absolutely need a wireless mouse and keyboard because they work better and just generally going on about crap he doesnt know about. After he was finished with her I met her near the cashier and told her the real facts about what she was going to buy. She brought some of the stuff back and gave me $20 for saving her a few hundred Man were they ever pissed though lol

Re: which is better, wireless g or mixed mode?

haha....I was at best buy one time and I actually ended up "selling" a computer to someone. I just happened to be wearing a blue polo shirt and I was looking at the computers and this lady started asking me questions and I just ended up helping her pick out a computer based on what she needed and I even told her that I saw an ad for the same computer on sale somewhere else and to tell them when she checked out and they would price match it. She said I was the most helpful person she had ever talked to at best buy and then was surprised when I said I didn't work there. haha.

So should I put my router on g, mixed, or auto 108mbps? I'll have a desktop and 360 wired to it and 2 laptops wireless to it.
