Super G

 .. Or Super 6?

Netgear and D-Link both have Super G 802.11g offerings out now. D-Link”s comes via an upgrade to their Atheros based products. Firmware for the DI-624 V3 router, drivers for the NICs. Packet bursting and channel bonding are available, supposedly to double the throughput to 108 Mbps.

One problem. Super 6 is hardwired to Channel 6. Can”t set the channel. In my neighborhood there are 3 others with wireless routers on 6 all interfering with each other. So I stay on Channel 1 and 11. I”d like to try out Super G, but apparently it won”t be today…
