if it does, then i want to sign up with your cable provider!saga said:I know the airport express has a 54mbps rate, and am wondering if the computer is directly connected, will info transfer at a greater rate than 54mbps. Sorry for the confusion.
Thanks for the help. I actually hooked up the airport express last night, and went ahead for a test run, and I downloaded just fine. I didn't notice any lag in time in comparison to being directly connected to the modem.thewhitehart said:Interference from cordless landline phones and microwaves can cause signals to cut out, but other than that, you probably won't notice a significant drop in speed by using the airport express instead of a direct hookup.
No consumer internet connection will go as fast as 54Mbps - that's the g maximum transfer rate for files shared between wireless g computers. Your cable internet should go no higher than 1 megabyte per second on average.
It's sad that some stores encourage users to buy 'super' g or 'MIMO' at 108 Mbps, making these people think their webpages will load faster. These speed quotes are only good for file transfer times over a network.
