Default 802.11b vs. 802.11g - current view?

802.11g gives greater range than 802.11b - you may be thinking about 802.11a
which has a smaller range:


- Simon.

"David W.E. Roberts" wrote in message

have previously read that 802.11g gives higher bandwidth but less range


However there is always the possibility that the 802.11g kit is better
engineered to overcome the shorter range issue.

Which is the best option if range is important?

Interesting link but if you read it carefully, as far as I can see, it
says g has greater range than a, there is no b/g comparison other than
OFDM being better than CCK for multipath.
