What is Super G? It is a feature designed to increase throughput in an 802.11G network. It consists of 4 separate features including Dynamic Packet Bursting, Fast Frames, Hardware Compression and Encryption, and Multi-channel 108 Mbps Turbo Mode. Packet Bursting basically reduces the amount of wait time required between data packets. Fast Frames increased the number of bits sent per data frame. So packet bursting sends more packets in a given time and fast frames sends more data per frame which means these two work together. Data Compression and Encryption is supported in the Super G hardware. The hardware compresses the data before transmission and decompresses it after reception. So this feature increased data throughput by compression. Multi Channel Turbo Mode takes two 54Mbps wireless channels and sends data over each, effectively creating a 108Mbps link."

I'm using the DI-624 but only at 54 not 108. I don't think I have an option to try the "Super G" mode. Do you know if that is a downloadable update, or is it just the newer 624s?

What revision do you have? You need to have revision B or C to take advantage of the "Super". If you have B or C, there is a firmware update for it. Check out the link to see what revision you have:

The supers are coming down in price. I personally run everything wired. When I get my house I am wiring everything to the basement via a 24 port switch. This way, my house will be ready for the future. I am also using a high frequency cable to be ready for a simple switch swapout to gain gigabit capability. This not only increases the value of the home, but It makes highspeed life nice and simple.

Remember, with regards to wireless; even if you are running a 54 g network, you might not be running at 54 g speeds. Your network will experience speeds across the boards at the slowest connection on your network. If you have one computer connecting at 11mps your network will operate at that speed instead of 54. (i think this is still true - if it isn't please update me)

BTW - I am sending a copy of this post to the networking section of our forums because it has become much more then just a news posting.
