I've finally decided to setup a wireless network in my home, but when I looked at what to buy, I realized I don't really know what to get. I need to decide what type of router to get. My understanding is that there are "a", "b", and "g" standards. 802.11b is the older tech that has a max data rate of about 11Mbps, 802.11a is faster at 54Mbps but is incompatible with b devices, and 802.11g also has a data rate of 54Mbps and is compatible with b devices. Well, my main internet connection is cable and it only has a max download rate of about 150 kbps. So my question is, do I really need an "a"- or "g"-compatible router when I can only download at 150 kbps? I may upgrade my connection in the future, however, so I'd like my network to be somewhat scalable. What exactly does 11Mbps mean, compared to 150 kbps? I've also heard that real-world date rates are significantly slower than 11Mbps, so I'd have to take that into consideration. Thanks for your help. EDIT: Also, the computer connected to the router is going to be my eMac, so it has to be Mac-compatible. Are most of these routers Mac-compatible? I'm looking at Belkin and D-Link, but also some others.
