We have only wireless G adapters in all the comps in our house.
Our house is quite big so at then outskirts the signal is weak (when using wireless G router).
I then upgraded from a wireless G router to a wireless G + eXtended range (TP-Link).
This made the connection slightly better.
Just recently I upgraded to a wireless N router.
This has made the connection way way better. (now I am getting 70% connection strength as opposed to 30%).
BUT: How is this possible??? If all my devices are wireless G, then isn't it just as hard for my wireless N router to 'hear' my devices?
And isn't a connection only as strong as it's weakest link?
Shouldn't I still have the same overall unreliable connection with the N router as with the G considering that the reliability of the connection relies on both my devices being able to 'hear' the router AND the router being able to 'hear' - the much weaker - clients?
Maybe someone can illuminate the situation.
