    I'm soon to be staying in Taiwan for a while and wanted to know if my
    802.11g will work there.... any thoughts on that?
    Thanks

    I see no reason why not... a US router should connect to US devices no
    matter where they are. Be careful of the voltage/frequency difference,
    though.

    I investigated on my own and found that it uses the same channels as North
    America (1 to 11) and the power is also the same. Japan uses channels up to
    14 while most of the rest of the world uses channels up to 13.
