The old airport card is capable of 11Mbps whereas your standard DSL or cable connection ranges from 384Kbps to 4Mbps so there is plenty of room to spare. Where you will notice a slow down is transferring files from computer to computer over the wireless network. The new airport extreme has transfer speeds of 55Mbps.mulls7 said:Thanks for those answers. With it being 802.11b will it be really slow? I only really want to have email/internet access.
I can assure you that powerbooks and AIrPort Extreme cards do work with NetGear wifi routers.Enda Crowley said:and if a netgear one worked then i would get on the net fine in my house which is all i want it for since it works fine in school
