Hi there,

Just found out that Wired Country won't work for me because I am too far away from the tower, can see it but signal nearly non existent..

So I have to go with Jetstream, and will be looking a the 2Mbps plan on Oct 24th when it is launched..

So now I have a Nokia MW1122.

I recently bought a nokia c110 wireless pcmcia card for it to enable its wireless properties.

The card is 802.11b standards.

Would a 802.11g card have worked with MW1122? Or does it need the specific Nokia card that Nokia recommends for it?

I am just going to plug my current switch into the Nokias ethernet port so my home server, workstation and occasionally laptop can use it.

My neighbour and I are going to share the connection wirelessly using mac addresses and encryption and software firewalls too.

He will need a PCI 802.11b card for his desktop.

He already has a laptop with integrated wifi.. need to find out if its a 802.11b or g.

If it is a 802.11g , will it be able to use the 802.11b network?

How compatible is 802.11b with 802.11g? Will they "see" each other

"g" should always be backward compatable with "b".

It will only run at 802.11b speeds of course.

I run a "g" card with a "b" WAP here with no problems at all.
