difference between 802.3b and 802.11b

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Tony Warburton, Nov 25, 2004.

  1. I have a NetGear 802.11b wireless router but a laptop with a 802.3b card.
    Will it work? I try to read the info but everything says I need
    compatability accross the network. Is the 802.11b router backward
    compatable, albeit a drop in speed, with the 802.3b card?
