Wireless Network Modes


wireless-conne

  • B/G/N-Mixed Connects all the wireless client devices at their respective data rates
    in this mixed mode.
  • Up to 270Mbps means that all 802.11g, 802.11b, and faster Draft-N wireless stations
    can be used. This mode expands the channel bandwidth from 20 MHz to 40 MHz to
    achieve the 270-Mbps rate. The router selects channel expansion on a frame-by-frame
    basis to avoid interference with the data transmissions of other access points or
    wireless stations. Up to 270Mbps mode uses two channels, but in this mode only the
    first channel is listed in the channel pulldown menu. The associated channels in
    this mode are: 1+5, 2+6, 3+7, 4+8, 5+9, 6+10, and 7+11.
    Up to 270Mbps mode is the fastest mode and is compatible with older wireless stations.

  • Up to 130Mbps allows wireless stations that support speeds up to 130 Mbps. It is the default setting. In this case, the router transmits two streams with different data concurrently on the same channel. This mode restricts channel bandwidth to minimize interference with the data transmissions of other access points and wireless stations.
  • g & b allows older 802.11g and 802.11b wireless stations to access this device. You might want to select this mode if you have a wireless station that is using WEP security and does not support WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK.
  • g only allows only 802.11g wireless stations to access this device.
  • b only allows only 802.11b wireless stations to access this device. However, note that in b only mode, 802.11g wireless stations can connect if they can operate in 802.11b mode.
