Hey, what happened to my 108 Super G?
« on: August 17, 2007, 08:44:56 PM »

I've been trying to use my super G card (DWL-G520) so my son can have a wireless connection to my new DIR-655.  When I do, everything slows down to 54 (regular G speeds).  I have this sinking feeling that the DIR-655 isn't truly compatible with all my old DLink 108 super G equipment.

Somebody tell me I'm wrong!  How do I make the DIR-655 run in super G mode with my super G stuff?

The DIR-655 is not Super G it is Draft N.  This means that your Super G devices will connect at 54 Mbps (MAX) and will slow your network to 54Mbps.

Fat Man is right.

You can't run your cards in super G mode.

Why did you buy a new N router with out getting  N adapters?

Well that's dissappointing.  I was suspecting that the N router wouldn't support Extreme or super G.  I found a PCI N adaptor for his computer.  But I can't find a wireless bridge/client to for my sons XBox / PS2.  Am I missing something?  Is there an N bridge/client to replace the DGL-3420 or DWL G810/G820?  :)

The DAP-1555 is a dual-band 802.11n draft wireless bridge.

The DAP-1555 doesn't appear to be out yet. The description made it sound like you needed 2, one to plug into the router and the other to the HD/Game boxes.  And the footnotes on the product desciption page leave me wondering if they are going to make their 3rd quarter release date.  It was supposed to be dual band, so what does the **footnote mean?

** Due to government regulations the 5.25~5.35GHz and 5.47~5.725GHz wireless bands are removed.

Anybody actually have one working as a client/bridge?

The footnote has to do with recent regulations requiring that 5 GHz devices (i.e. 802.11a, etc.) not use certain channels unless the hardware has been re-certified to comply with the new regulations.  Since the 5 GHz band has a bunch of channels available, the unused ones won't be missed.
