I'm confused... so we all know the 802.11g mode, a 54Mbps wireless link, but I have seen tons of "boosting" & extending -features, by now and I don't know which of them are usable, useful and/or can be mixed...
This started with the LinkSys WRT54GS (broadcom wifi) I bought some time ago.
This device was claimed to have a "speedboster", whatever this may be...
I found statements saying this is Turbo-G mode...
Well most of the current Atheros cards have a "Turbo-G" mode, I notice this when the madwifi-driver is loaded, anyway the madwifi driver shows this as turbo-g 54mbps for my Wistron CM9 and XR2, while there are sources on the internet which propose 108mbps to be the Turbo-G mode....
and finally my other Buffalo WHR-54GS (broadcom wifi) do have a "125mbps" mode, and I think they also call it "Turbo-G", because there'S a Turbo-G label on the surface of this router...
last but not least, some ppl told me, that super-G only exists and works with atheros cards.... huh???
So, you may be understand my confusion now....
Are these modes mixable? Which of them does bring real speed-boosting?
Can broadcom and atheros super-G be mixed?
Is the speedboser feature of the WRT54GS a super-G mode?
Which of these features are supported by OpenWRT(by madwifi?)
Actually I'm looking for the fastest possible bridge-connection between my home and my office.
I currently have two WRT54GS, running WDS in normal 54Mbps mode.
So I'm now wondering if there is a way to tweak this connection a little bit..
The following solutions would be possible:
WRT54GS -- WRT54GS (current, possible add "Speedboster"?)
CM9 --- WRT54GS
CM9 --- Buffalo WHR-54GS
WRT54GS --- WHR-54GS
WHR-54GS ---- WHR-54GS
Which of them would provide the fastest link, what do you think?
Does anyone have experiences with these "turbo" modes?
Thx a lot to everyone
