    Hi,

    This one is to do with Wirelss, as is probably obvious. :D

    The problem is . . . . .

    I know 802.11a works on the 5.0Ghz band
    I know 802.11b works on the 2.4Ghz band

    What I dont know is the actual regs for the 802.11G. Ive tried checking websites, and some come up as 5.0Ghz, others come up as 2.4Ghz, and one came up saying the 802.11G standard could theoretically use both, so that 802.11G could be compatable with both 802.11b and 802.11a.

    Does anyone know the actual answer....

    Many thanks in advance chaps and chappesses.

    'g' is in the 2.4GHz band, the same as 'b'. It never uses the 5GHz band - that is 'a' only. This why there was so much difficulty getting 'g' not to cause severe problems with legacy 'b' systems.

    The title page for the standard says:
    Code:
     Amendment 4: Further Higher Data Rate Extension
    in the 2.4 GHz Band

    I should add here that unlike many other standards (except for RFCs) the IEEE802 series is available for free here .
