    Default Router and Wireless card: Backwards compatible?

    Okay, so my brother wants a laptop so he can fingerquote play games endfingerquote with me, so, I was just mildly stumped on the mild portion of whether a Wireless G net card can connect to a Wireless B Router.


    I hate my router.
    It's about as fast as the turtles on those comcast commercials.

    Anyways- Wireless G card backwards compatible with Wireless B router?

    kthxhbai.

    Oh, I know a laptop for gaming is like shooting yourself in the foot and claiming a hippy did it. Not my idea.

    1) Most, if not all, wireless g cards are compatible with b, but obviously the speed is limited to wireless b speeds.

    2) Gaming laptops can work. If you happen to have a lot of money and a really good reason not to get a desktop.

    NB: When I say most I mean I know of none that are not compatible, but I suppose it is possible.

    Thanks.
    He doesn't have a lot of money, and the only reason not to have a desktop is because he likes to walk around the house with it.

    Yup i agree.


    He's acting like a spoiled brat if he needs a laptop just to walk the fuck around.

    On top of that, wireless connections are fucking pathetic anyway. Always try to use cable if possible.
    <Teth> It's best not to talk to Gunther, though
    <Jarlaxle> why ? he's a legend
    <Teth> He's primarily a legend because he's very good at antagonizing the ops without going far enough to be pwnz0red

    <@erik> Gunther will, true to his nature, probably get himself banned again soon enough ;)

    Not all of us can, unfortunatly. I'd have to run cables about 8 meters along, and up to the next floor which is impractical.
