    802.11b vs 802.11a
    I know the theoretical differences, A being 5ghz and 54mpbs and B being 2.4Ghz and 11mbps, but i want to hear form ppl who have owned BOTH types and what they think. Is there alot of problem with 2.4Ghz phones and B? Whats the real life difference in file sharing and print services? Im gonna buy one and i want to know what you have aswell...

    I don't have any rev.a stuff, but I have heard of the interference problem though. It is also not backward compatable with rev.b . When rev.g comes out, it should be almost as fast as rev.a, without the problems.

    lol, I really don't know many of the bugs as I don't own one. My friends keep complaining though. Now if I could remember what they were complaining about :?:

    About a week or so ago, a group of us here in Warrnambool had a meeting about setting up a wireless network here in Warrnambool - all the gear we've got so far has been 802.11b and we've had absolutely no problems with regard to mobile phones.

    Speedwise, however, I don't think there's a huge difference - definately not 43Mbp, anyway. We did, however, manage to copy across some Mp3s over a 1.7km distance with a non-fine-tuned omni antennae at a speed of about 4mbps, so it wasn't too bad :).
