Okay, this debacle kept me up last night so I had to go to the library to
research. Here are my finding:

802.11b
ho hum connectivity for the masses. Popular with AOL users and Expedition
driving soccer moms. Oh wait. Maybe net yet. uses 2.4Ghz range with a splash
of sprectrum spread. Max speed 11Mbps. This protocol will interfere with
your X-10 video distribution and your cordless phone network…assuming you
are up to date.

802.11g
802.11b with some ‘speed tweaks’. Kinda like a street racer bolting on clear
corners, cold air induction and a cat-back GReddy exhaust.
Uses 2.4Ghz. Will work with 802.11b networks. 54Mbps max speed. Apple uses
this in their AirPort® Extreme. They really should have called it Xtreem
AirPort®….but who am I to name brand?

802.11a
54Mbps max speed. uses 5.4 MGhz. Not compatible with b or g protocols.

stay tuned for 802.11e and 802.11h
