where are dr martens made How do i tell if i am connected with N or G on wifi
But. in regards to N band. The majority of N band operates on 2.4ghz. It is when you get a router that has dual band capability where you have a N band that operates on the 2.4ghz and the other N band that operates on the 5 Ghz band. Your particular router, D Link DIR 655 is a single band (2.4ghz) for B, G, and N.In regards to speed. on the client side using a N adapter. just check the connection status. It will tell you the speed that it is connected at. The actual speed is another story. If you have strong connection from the client to the router and the router and client are configure correctly, you should be at 300.Now if your N adapter is locked at 54mbps. you need to check your incryption setting on the router. You should be running WAP2 PSK AES only. NO TKP. Using TKP will lock your speed to 54mbps.By the way, I use to run a DIR 655 (i still have it), but now my current running router is a netgear WNDR 3700. Great router, longer range, faster speed, and dual band.Also, I’d think that even during a given session,
the adapters can switch “bands”. So you could start out on “g” and then it might switch to “n”, or even to “b”, and so on at some future point during a session. For example, if the packet loss rate goes too high, I would ASSUME the standards allow the adapters to be smart enough to search in real time for an alternative connection to maintain or even improve the data rate (but that IS an assumption). It would be similar to the way cell phones and towers negotiate phone tower communication as signals degrade, or handing off the signal as you travel toward and away from different cell sites. At least that’s what would make sense to me were I designing the firmware/software. For example, depending on the encryption protocols, for every character of actual message content data, you might need an additional ‘x’ bits that encapsulate the data for the encryption protocol. I guess this is something for me to research if no one here knows for sure.BTW, the reason I’m posting here is that I’m currently in the market for a wireless router and a wireless USB dongle, and I’ve been reading about some fairly expensive routers and dongles having poor “n” band performance,
with “g” band devices equaling and even surpassing them in data rate (from industry reviews and buyer “feedback”).
