- Wireless-G (802.11g) The ratified IEEE 802.11g specification is a standard for wireless local area networks (WLANs) that offers transmission at relatively short distances at up to 54Mbps (Megabits per second) over the harmless 2.4 GHz radio frequency. 802.11g is ideal for 2 storey, 1-3 bedroom homes with standard brick or plasterboard interior walls. There are also variations on this standard often called Super G or 108Mbps Wi-Fi. You can expect a 35% or greater increase in throughput over standard 802.11g when paired with Super-G adapters. Both Wireless-G and Super-G are based on 802.11g antenna technology and therefore the poor range and signal reliability thatís found in 802.11g is evident here when deployed in demanding environments.
- Wireless-N (802.11n) is the current generation of high-speed Wireless Router, capable of delivering the range and capacity to support today's most bandwidth-hungry applications, like streaming HD (High Definition) video, voice and music and playing multiplayer online games. The standard for Wireless-N is 300Mbps, though 150Mbps, 450Mbps, 600Mbps, 750Mbps and 900Mbps variation are available, however as with all Wi-Fi you must use a wireless adapter that is capable of supporting the higher speeds to achieve the benefits.
- Wireless-AC (802.11n) is the next generation of wireless technology and is currently under development. Wireless-AC supports speeds over 1Gbps when used the other Wireless-AC compatible devices.
