I was wondering if anyone had some input regarding the different WiFi standards and whether it'd be worth it or not to make any adjustments.
So I finally got my internet installed at my new place (Comcast 12/3 Mb, currently Speedtesting at 25/4 - must be a new customer gimmick) and was wondering about routers.
I have an ancient Linksys 802.11g router, but was wondering if it would be a notable difference to get a newer 802.11n router. And if I did go the 'n route, would it be best to run in 2.4 GHz, 5, or both?
I live in a studio apartment, so the range wouldn't matter. I was just looking what would be the best bang for my buck. The g router seemed to work well enough in my last place, but I was wondering if the difference would be that significant to be running on an all 'n network.
Well, all I really have is my MacBook, which works with 802.11n 5 GHz. I don't really connect my phone to WiFi at home often. My new place is also a studio, so walls wouldn't matter since there are none between myself and the router.
I was looking at getting the Apple AirPort Express, but I wasn't sure if its performance equaled its price. I'd really rather not even consider the Extreme, I'm sure there's an another manufacturer who can provide the same performance for cheaper. $159 is a bit much for just a router, imo (edu pricing).
Apple has an info page, but doesn't list the transfer speeds anywhere for either.
