WDS n, Ap g


I've got a wifi network in a condominium block.
At the moment I've got some aps linked by WDS on 802.11 g, but it looses quite a lot of the speed.

Is it possible to link the aps with WDS 802.11n and clients connect with their 802.11g receivers?

  1. Sure but it won't increase their speed any since they have G connections on the computers. Your issue is probably with where the access points are located in relation to the clients. Distance + walls = low speed.
  2. My concern is the wds link between the APs,
    With n wifi, the APs will be connected more stongly, right?

    The users will receive what they get in their room, that's fine. I just want to make stronger the links between distant APs so there are no lost in signal...
    having a ping less than 5ms between APs..

    So mixture WDS n, clients g working right?
  3. Ah, yea that should work out, read this though http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long-range_Wi-Fi

    If you are upgrading your APs, look at the part about MIMO (multiple antennas) so you can select a good one.
