Benefit of using wireless g only?
Is there any benefit of setting access points to using 'g' only, and not 'b'? I.e specifically enforcing g only? All our wireless laptops are fairly new, and support the newer 'g' band (not worried about older equipment!).
Are there any negative consequences, particularly taking into consideration multiple laptops logging on at a time?
This isn't a true managed wireless system, but I do try and manage it

If you have one b client connected with other g clients the access point can only perform at b speeds i.e. 11Mbs even though the windows client is telling you that the g clients have a 54Mbs connection.

Thanks. So does that mean forcing the access point to be G only is actually pointless, if a 'b' client is able to connect?

It means that the access point will reject any communication from a b client. The b client will be able to see the network but wont be able to connect.
