But it's all back now. The 108Mbps shit is too finiky to be worth it, regardless of the brand. The way it works is by utilizing channels above and below the ssid channel, essentially making multiple connections to the router, sort of tricking it into thinking more than one card is accessing and pulling ~54Mbps each. Technically it should work fine in a pretty clear environment, but if you get in an area with multiple wi-fi spots, they all share the same channels, and you'll get a lot of interferance and it could go below B speeds. I read about one guy getting dial-up speeds when he'd force turbo mode, due to the interferance.
Not to mention the "turbo" settings draw more power (due to more concurrent connections), and if you force it to stay in turbo mode, it has a much higher chance of overloading the router, forcing a reboot. The card never saw the router again when that happened, until I set it back to dynamic turbo (which claims that it will ramp up the speed as needed, but usually runs at 54Mbps. I copied a 700MB file over, and it ramped up the speed to around 96Mbps for about 10 seconds of the 6 minute transfer, so the "compatability mode" as it's referred, pretty much means it will just transfer at 54Mbps almost exclusively).
So I just picked up the standard G router, with a rebate, for $30. Not too terrible. I'll just wait for 802.11n and get a true 100Mbps wireless without having to fuck with any "turbo" settings.
