more WIFI and MAC/PC


Recommended Posts

ok, so here is where it is NOW:

 

have a cable modem hooked up to a NETGEAR WIRELESS ROUTER model WGT624. have a winXP box with a wifi pci card in it. this works.

 

want to hook a mac up to the network.

 

mac has ethernet.

 

can i use an ME101 wireless ethernet bridge to do this?

 

is all 802.11b equipment interchangable?

 

?????

 

?

so if i have an 802.11b router, i can hook up an 802.11b wireless access point regardless of brand?

Should not be a problem.

 

I run netgear 101's at work and my mac's all pick it up . I have not tried it in bridge mode, but honestly, the PC's are way more finicky than the macs. If you have a problem, download netstumbler for the mac from versiontracker.com

 

In general, all 802.11b stuff play swell together. I have used Netgear, Linksys and Apple products with no issues.

Interesting...

 

I just built my DAW around the A7N8X-E (has some wifi crap adapter). Wonder if I'll ever use it.

I think it would be awesome (for others) if they could back up the stuff in their DAW into another comp, "wirelessly"...over the air. I heard of a free program that basically backs up the modified files, never replacing a file with an older version. It was on thw "Screen Savers" show... I"ll search on it..

do G and B communicate together? speed is not a concern for the mac, 10mb/s is plenty fast for what its used for.

 

an me101 runs about $75, but the G version is over $225. cant afford that.

I think you're talking about what Apple call Airport and Airport Extreme. They are compatible - I have an Airport base station and am extreme card in my G5 and they work fine.
