    WAP

    Can anyone tell me if there is such a thing as a WAP that
    supports 802.11a, b,g, and pre-n? It must support the latest WPA
    protocol and have an Ethernet connector. I'd like as much of the
    trimmings (special features) as possible without running the price out
    of the ballpark.

    Regards,

    So you want both the 2.4Ghz and the 5.8Ghz ?

    Yes. I want dual band and the pre-n support (so that
    hopefully I can add the n support with a firmware upgrade after they
    finalize the standard).

    I current have two WAPs, an a and a b,g. Neither support WPA.
    I think the best way would be to find a WAP that would support all of
    it.

    The closest I've come is the Netgear WAG102. It supports, a,
    b, and g but provides nothing towards pre-n support.

    Any suggestions?

    Regards,



    Fred

    I too have two wap's, one a only, and one b-g-pre-n, and (just plug one into
    the others router part)... very cheap, both support wpa (actually 3, 3rd is
    a BlueTooth AP plugged into the router part)

    Good, cheap/easy/quick off the shelf stuff, easy to repair/maintain/etc
    (power strip and cat5 cable, adds under $10)
    Bad, not all in one box, but several (I personally think multiple boxes is
    good, but some people like integrated, look at home stereo stuff)

    You'll find that if you enable Pre-802.11n Draft 2 high speed
    performance, 802.11b/g compatibility usually disabled. There are
    several modes (legacy, mixed, and green field modes) the determine how
    backwards compatibility operates. See:
    <http://www.wirelessnetdesignline.com/howto/wlan/199700564> (3 pages)
    for how it all works. Basically, if you want the high speeds that a
    40MHz channel offers, you gotta disabled 802.11b/g, or it's like
    dragging an anchor.

    See Linksys WRT600N:
