Set up an AirPort Base Station for fast 802.11n-only use
Authored by: kainewynd2 on Dec 24, '08 08:38:38AM
I think there is a typo in the original post - I believe it should be 500 Mb (megabits) instead of 500 MB (megabytes).

On my N-only network I get between 150-250 Mb/s depending on how far away from the base station I am. Given that I was getting little to no signal when it was on the 2.4 Ghz spectrum (I am flooded with 2.4 Ghz signal in my apartment), I found this to be a HUGE improvement.

(As a side note, I also resurrected an old Airport Extreme (802.11b/g) to handle my iPhone, Wii, and Xbox 360. Those seem to work pretty well since I'm not doing any LAN work with those).

the original post talked about 500MB per MINUTE. so it is 8.33MB/s, reasonable for N wireless. although it is not common to count transfer rate by minute
