Aironet 1231g permforance in a 11b/11g network

I want to set up a network here in my office using a Cisco Aironet 1231g to test how well the 11b and 11g cards work within a shared 11b/11g environment. Since I've heard some stories of how in mixed environments that b cards will drop all the g users down to the 11mbps max.

I was wondering if someone could comment on how the aironet held up in this environment and if I need to buy just a 2.2 dBi Dipole Antenna or need to break down and also get a Diversity Omnidirectional Ceiling Mount Antenna?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much.

When operating in mixed mode (operating with 802.11b clients associated) the 802.11g network will adopt 802.11b backoff times. When operating without 802.11b clients associated, the 802.11g network will adopt the higher-performance 802.11a backoff times. Please refer the data sheets given below
