Question re INTERFERENCE 802.11b

    I have a linksys router and wireless set up (802.11b, 2.4ghz). I want to use a audio/video sender device between rooms that gets significant interference from the wireless lan as it also operates at the 2.4ghz spectrum. (when i turn off the wireless internet, it seems to work better).

    Will going to a 802.11g or 5 ghz spectrum linksys device work better?

    No. Since 802.11g is backwards compatible with 802.11b, it can be reasonably expected that both standards operate in the same spectrum.

    802.11a runs at a higher frequency band of 5GHz, so it should not be affected by interference from 802.11b/g WLANs. Please also note that a 802.11a network is not compatible with 802.11b or 802.11g one.
