    A: it is more up scale is uses the 5ghz range so the rotuers and the wireless adapters are more expensive than the G and B standards. most expensive

    B:this was the first, is gives you a ok 11mbps transfer rate. it is good in range . least expensive

    G: maybe the best outu of these for value. you can get a max of 54mbps and is really reliable. the range is great 3rd least expensive

    G with speedbooster: you can get about 108mbps but cannot mix and match vendor, meaning you cannot have a linksys speedbooster rotuer and have a netgear spped booster adapter, you might not get the full 108mbps. 2nd most expensive.
