I have to confirm that since I switched to 802.11g hardware
I'm facing lot of unespected trouble; however, I also
have to say that 802.11b worked flawlessly instead.
As the 802.11g cards usually have a 802.11b compatibility mode,
I'm thinking to force the cards to run in 11b mode,
as a last resort before trashing them in the junk bin.
Anybody tried this?
