Routers G and Routers N

  preston 20:39 21 Jan 2009

What is the big difference. what is the big difference if you are loading or uploading large files and streaming.

preston, the G & N really just relate to the maximum speed that data will be transferred through the router on your internal network at home. I blieve that G is 54Mbps and N is something like 125Mbps.

If you are downloading off the internet though you will be limited to the maximum speed that your phone line will cope with, which is usually somewhere up to about 8Mbps, so unless you move to a faster ISP or broadband product you won't notice much of a difference at all.

Hope this help.

Further to GoldenEagle - if you are transferring data via a wireless link then you will notice a difference. For example G is fine for photos being transferred from PC to be viewed wirelessly on a TV but video is likely to be jerky. N standard is more likely to cope with video.

But downloading and uploading files depends on your ISP connection.
