    Not all public WiFi runs the "G" standard.

    I think he was taking issue with your blanket statement that all public hotspots are using 802.11G. I have no idea why you would think that. 802.11N has been around long enough that it seems pretty pervasive in all devices.

    The public hotspots all run B, G, N but most devices connect using the G, or a majority of them. Some connect with N but only get to 150 - 200. To have a full N connection, everything connected to the router has to be using a N connection and the router has to be set up specifically for N.....no public network will run that, its not feasable for thier customers.

     

    The least used is the B but some devices people have still use that, the most used is the G connection by customers. The N is used but with speed restrictions sue to router set to allow all customers to use it.

     

    Public wifi is set up per customer base but some public wifi run two routers also, one with a combo and one with just the N signal for those customers that want to use that.

    That may or may not be true but it totally contradicts your previous statement tht all public hotsputs run the "G" standard.

    All wifi do run the G........ thats the most popular. No router made can run only G, they run B, G, N and the older ones run mostly B, G. Nothing contradicting about that, its what i said.

     

    I think your misreading what i posted.

    You obviously dont have any network or router experience if you dont know what im talking about. What i mentioned is standard networking.

    My comments to you are by no means personal so dont take them that way. I see alot of people on this site are straight forward, extremely rude to people who are just looking for help. I dont agree with that approach at all. but thats how some people are, im not like that and i dont intend my comments to be taken that way.

     

    I realize people on here dont have experience with computers, networking and some do.

    And some contradict themselves.
