Both the router and the card in the laptop use the 11b protocol.
I am told that a router with 11g gets greater range. True? – If I upgrade the router to 11g, must I also upgrade the card in the laptop?
Is there an easier way to extend the range?
I am told one can use a “repeater”, a device that sits somewhere between the laptop and the router, to extend the range. Is “repeater” the correct name for that device? Is the link between the repeater and the router <wireless> or must it be hardwired to the router?
Thanks for clarifying options.
