Wireless networking has become the must have thing for computer users with wireless starting to replace wired networks not only for the PC industry, but the entire IT infrastructures. Wireless Internet and data traffic is now becoming a full blown reality and it's certainly good to see that the PC industry is gaining support for this new way of transferring data without cables.
When first released, 802.11g really left a sour taste in our mouth. First off we had problems with both integrity as well as speed. Data packet loss was extremely high, and to run 54mbps you would have to be less than 2-3 feet from the access point. Gigabyte simply has done a fantastic. We managed to get 108mbps speed with less than 10% signal loss up to 8 meters away, and 54mbps up to a full 11 metres away which is better than what Gigabyte rates the unit at.
The 108mbps implementation really is a fine touch. The need for wires now is simply not an issue with the Gigabyte Super-G, unless you want to go Gigabit which should be the only time you would want to have any network cables for this setup.
Overall Gigabyte has put a lot of work into getting this unit up and running 100% trouble free with a great easy to use interface and setup. We commend Gigabyte and give the GN-849G Broadband Router and its companion GA-WMA01 PCMCIA controller a 9 out of 10 and TweakTown's Must Have Editors Choice award.
