How much faster would a 802.11b network be than a dial-up connection?
Erm... 802.11B is rated at a maximum speed of 11Mb/sec whereas a dialup modem is usually about 56Kb/sec. However, 802.11B is a network standard, not an internet speed standard. The difference will still come down to what sort of new connection (broadband, cable or whatever) is running through the 802.11B network.
Ahh thank you.. well then I guess it would be worth telling the situation. . So I have an iBook.. the last version.. obviously with the 802.11g card. We have DSL and the router is slightly over a year old. If a 2002 G3 iBook was to be purchased along with the 802.11b AirPort card... how well would the internet run?
The internet connection is slower than 802.11b so it would be the same speed as it is on your current iBook.
...Unless you have ADSL2+ or something. Yeah, adding a G3 iBook to the mix will slow your network down to 11Mb/sec however as yippy the daredevil plane said, this won't really affect internet speeds. It may affect file transfer speeds between the computers though.
