Cisco 802.11N adapter???

Is there such thing as a Cisco .11n wifi adapter?

Is there a USB Cisco wifi adpater?

Is there a PCI Express Cisco wifi adapter?

If the AP is 11n, are the b/g wifi cards still gonna work? Are the 11n AP's backward compatible with the b/g wifi adapters?

Thanks for any ideas.

Re: Cisco 802.11N adapter???

Here is what I know. Hope it helps.

Is there such thing as a Cisco .11n wifi adapter?

No. Cisco is working along side Intel to standardize on the draft 2.0. Cisco is out of the wifi card business.

Is there a USB Cisco wifi adpater?

No.

Is there a PCI Express Cisco wifi adapter?

i think they use to make one, unless it is not the PCIe.

If the AP is 11n, are the b/g wifi cards still gonna work? Are the 11n AP's backward compatible with the b/g wifi adapters?

Yes they are backwards compatible with a/b/g. Just make sure your drivers are up to date.

Re: Cisco 802.11N adapter???

unfortunately, our new laptops don't come with the pcimcia slots. i think they're called pci express now, where the interface part of the card is chopped in half. so, i'm left with usb, internal and the pci express for wifi slots. there are other compatible cards in the airmagnet website either usb or pci express that i will have to check if they will go with our new laptops.
