    b/g and n wireless at the same time

    Would a system like Ruckus or Meru support having both a b/g and n wireless networks being active at the same time?

    So if you have some older laptops which only support b/g and new laptops that support n, can these systems run 2 wireless networks without interference or problems? That way you get the best speeds for both laptops.

    You can run b/g networks with most Access Points, but I'm not so sure yet about b/g/n. The answer should be yes, but then I've read reports of g/n conflicting. The difficulty is that the n standard has been around for a while, but it's essentially a 'beta version', with the final version being slightly different.

    I suspect some manufacturers will provide a firmware upgrade, but some may force you to upgrade to an official device. I would recommend you contact Ruckus and/or a distributor for a definitive answer.

    my schools have Ruckus with both G & N clients running at the same time, as far as im aware they don't interfere with each other, my N laptop runs the speed test @ just over 91mb up & down.

    That's good to know. Looks like n speeds are fast approaching those of Fast Ethernet

    All wireless networks support this mixed mode today, Ruckus also supports airtime fairness and band steering which enhances this further
