seeking advice on changing from an 802.11b router to an 802.11g

Discussion in 'Broadband Hardware' started by John Herleman, May 13, 2004.

  1. I have a microsoft wireless 802.11b router in my network.
    I would like to replace it with an 802.11G to improve the
    speed.

    When I get ready to do that do I just unplug the "B", then
    run the "G" setup software, then plug in the "G" version,
    or do I need to disable anything first before I unplug
    the "B"? Assuming that I keep the same network name will
    I need to change anything on the machines that are
    connected to my network through wireless adaptors (they
    are already all "G" adaptors?

    See my reply to "LoneGolfer". Unplug the "b" base
    station. Plug in the "g". Run the Setup software on one
    of the PC. It will find the new "g" base. If you keep
    the same netwrok name, just plug that in at set-up. Also
    the WEP code, as well.
