    Can someone confirm for me, I am running a Wireless - G access point and I am hoping I can use my older wireless network card?

    thanks, greggov

    Yes 802.11b NICs can be used with an 802.11g access point. (And vise versa.)

    Enab;e your CTS protection mode on the Advanced Routing screen and your 802.11B devices should be able to connect. This will downgade the performance of any 802.11g client devices if a 802.11b device is present.

    Good point. You'll probably want to enable CTS protection mode if you expect to have busy 802.11b & g devices on the network at the same time often. That said, 802.11b devices can connect even with CTS protection mode disabled, you just run a greater risk of their being extra collisions on the network. (I have CTS protection mode disabled on my network and connect with an 802.11b device daily without problems.)
