Wireless networking from its introduction gave the home, office and even the corporate world the freedom to interconnect their PC's without having to run messy cables around and install access points such as RJ-45 ports in each station.
802.11b started the full spread wireless revolution. Once the Intel Centrino platform required Wireless networking to get the Centrino certification, Wireless has taken hold in just about every environment but there is only one problem with this is Wireless standard - 802.11b supports a maximum bandwidth of 11mbps which is fine for sharing Internet access around the home or small office with limited file sharing but not good for media streaming to multiple PC's.
802.11g or Wireless-G as its been nicknamed did solve a lot of these problems by increasing the maximum bandwidth to 54mbps using the same 2.4Ghz frequency that the 802.11b used, allowing 802.11b to access 802.11g access points but at the 11mbps speed. This has allows moderate media streaming of MP3's and some DIVX movies, however, still not fast enough to really put the wired networks to shame since you'll rarely see the full 54mbps being transferred as we discussed here a couple years ago.
Some companies have taken the Dual Channel approach into consideration - if it works for memory on motherboards and graphics cards, why not networking. Turbo-G is the latest standard to come out using a Dual Channel setup to boost the throughput to 108mbps, 8mbps above what Fast Ethernet (wired) is capable of.
Today we look at Gigabyte's Turbo-G wireless solutions to see just what they have to offer and just what (if any) benefits comes from Turbo-G 108mbps bandwidth.
