Re: [K12OSN] Bandwidth...

One thing to keep in mind is that wireless is inherently a shared medium, meaning you can not do full-deplex. Also, while 802.11a has greater bandwidth (54Mb) than 802.11b (11Mb), it tends to not get the same distances that 802.11b gets. I don't know that it's proportional or not, and if your client and access point are 10 feet apart with no obstructions, 802.11a will give you more, but that's rarely the scenario.

We are trying to setup a server for a educator's tech conference in a

server is gonna be and where a couple workstations are gonna be in our

access points, it gets slow.  We also have a Orinoco long range wireless
kit that we use when we have major fiber issues - LTSP is slow there as
well.  I've tried a 10 Mbps hub and it seem slow then too.  I guess I'm
curious if there is anything we can do to make the 54g wireless access
points to work?  Eric or anyone else, can you give any advice?

I don't know what access point you're using. You need to be going at least 100mb on the server end. The 10mb on the terminal end should be ok, I've done it before. Does the server plug right into that wirless device? I know some can and some don't.
