USR 8054 vs LinkSys 802.11b

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Daniel Carwile, Jun 29, 2004.

  1. I replaced my LinkSys BEFW11S4 v.2 with a US Robotics 8054 about 4-5
    months ago. I took my laptop to the garage ~35yards today and I got
    "Wireless Network unavailable". Went back up to my deck and waited until it
    picked it back up and went down again with the lid open and 5 seconds after
    I stepped in the door it went unavailable again. I am a little disappointed
    since I could always get a signal with my LinkSys BEFW11S4. I can't
    remember if I could ever get a signal in the garage with the USR router but
    I was thinking I could but I updated the firmware recently and wondered if
    this made a difference. Anyone got any comments? Does 802.11b signal
    travel further than 802.11g?
