Wireless B/G Question

I know G offers higher speeds compared to B but does it also offer better range?

I always thought my G had better range and signal.

2007 GMC Sierra RCSB - It breathes better now and looks better than stock.
2008 Honda 700XX - Doesn't need any mods.

Well that's to bad, I probably should have checked into this before replacing my B routers with G Oh well

You still made a good move. In a lab, they come out rated for the same distances, but this is the same as the EPA's estimated gas mileage. It is a pile of horseshit. It's not really as much that is has better range, but the signal intensity is stronger within that range. It is all 2.4gHZ which makes them theoretically the same, but the G is just more stable even with a poorer link. Don't beat yourself up, you are still my favorite mod!!!

Directional antennas

I have replaced the whips on the linksys router with 2 flat directional antennas, helped a lot, but replacing the tiny antenna on the wireless cards helped more, you also can run more than one wireless card in a computer and link them for faster speeds.
