      Does it support 802.11n (draft)?

      Hey guys,

      I have a Mac, so ideally I'd prefer to use .11n instead of .11g. If I get Sky, reading these woes and the fact my D Attenuation is already quite high (>60dB) Im wondering if the thing will work at all on Sky, so I'd have to move the router to the Master socket which BT fitted.

      However - I have quite a big house, and .11g will not for the life of me stretch to the other end of the house - it goes a room off from mine though Typical - so I'd want to give .11n a try. Any ideas?

      I have Sky BB, and run 2 Mac on a network (1 iMac - which is 'G' and a new MBP which is 'N')

      The best way to get an 'N' network up and running is to get an Airport Extreme Basestation - This will allow your Sky BBand router to attach to one of the Lan ports, and then beam that around your house using the APE.

      Be aware that if you then connect a 'non-'N' PC or Mac to the network it will slow to that level.

      This months' Macworld mag covers this very subject btw!

      Hope this helps.

      Paul
