    Hi folks,

    just working through the LAN chapter in the new Meyers book and just want to double check I have got this right - the
    802.11g standard supports data throughput upto 54Mbps and range of 300 feet.

    I gave the above as a correct answer in the end of chapter questions but the answer is given as a throughput of 11Mbps and range of 300 ft is this an errata ?

    Thanks
    Matt

    Hm - 11Mbps is the 'b' standard, not 'g'. It could be a typo. Why not check the MM site - he is usualy very good at owning up to typos.

    Thanks Harry - checked the Meyers site already and its not listed as an error but the books new so maybe hasn't got on the site yet - you have answered my question though - looks like I get another tick on the end of chapter questions !

    He has a forum there as well. It might be worth posting there. You never know, you might get a name-check for spotting an error!

    I have got the Mike meyers book
    a guide to A+ Managing and Troubleshooting PCs

    on page 857 under the Network Chapter it states:-

    802.11a 54Mbps 150 Feet 5GHZ

    802.11b 11Mbps 300 Feet 2.4GHZ

    802.11g 54Mbps 300 Feet 2.4GHZ


    Hope this helps, but I would agree with Harry, it must be a typo:biggrin
