these orinoco cards are all only 11b, right? what card to buy?
I'm looking online at these orinoco gold & silver cards (and external usb ones) that quite a few people here seem to be using, and I see that they're 11b, not 11g. Sorry, I'm not completely up to speed on the 802.11x stuff, but I thought 11g was the best (newest, best signal, best range, etc). Is this incorrect? If 11g is better, I'm just trying to understand why a lot of people here are still messing around with these 11b devices...is it just because the orinoco's work with netstumbler, is that the sole reason?
bottom line is, I'm trying to figure out what wireless card (internal or external) to purchase for in my car. My main goal is wireless connectivity with a wireless router in my house, but I wouldn't mind being able to use netstumbler as well.
i mean, won't something like this netgear wg121 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...150-008&depa=1 or this D-Link DWL-G520 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...127-118&depa=1 work with netstumbler under Windows XP?
if not, can anyone tell me of any 11g cards that you do have working with netstumbler under XP?
