Re: USB adaptor
Actually B is 11mbps and G is 54mbps
IEEE 802.11 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I think some manufacturers used G and got up to 108 with it - but the standard is 54mbps. I think one of them was d-link.
Now there is also N which is 248mbps.

Re: USB adaptor
108Mbit/s is frankly a "lash-up" and is achieved through the bonding of two 54Mbit/s 802.11g channels sometimes known as Super G.
This sort of non standard channel bonding is known to cause significant problems by creating interference on other wi-fi channels, causing misery for other nearby wireless users and other wireless devices. Also, in real world, Super G and the like offers no speed advantage over standard 802.11g.
Sky of course ship the V1 router with this stupid 108Mbit/s enabled as default
