    Alright, I just bought a WRT54GS v5 router and still have my old Belkin 802.11b notebook adaptor cards and a 802.11b wireless print server. If I upgrade to the WPC54GS cards will I still be able to use my 802.11b print server or will I have to buy a new g-band print sever? Thanks.

    A mixed network of B and G cards will work but you would get slightly better performance if you could go G-only.

    I have a WPC54GS card and am really not sure it was worth the extra over a cheaper G card. Had lots of problems with drivers and signal strength/ sensitivity issues. I did get the speedbooster to work 25Mbps real throughput vs 20Mbps with speedbooster disabled - NB if you have many wireless clients this is shared between all - not a patch on full duplex 2*100Mbps wired connections!
