I had to give up on my 11g wireless network with too much competition for available frequencies from neighbouring WLANs and telephones. Yesterday I counted 10 different signals on my site survey and that was only downstairs; upstairs I pick up 3 more.
I broke down and bought 11a gear from D-Link and thus far, all is okay with no competition. However, I could only find the DI-784 11a/g router and DWL-AG132 USB adapters locally. I need to order an 11a bridge to connect my network upstairs with my network downstairs. There are multiple bridges for 11b/g but for 11a the selection is quite sparse. As for D-Link I was looking at the DGL-3420, which they term as a gaming adapter. Is this device a fully functional bridge or will it only accomodate a single end device? Anybody know how it will handle multiple MAC addresses?
What options do I have? There is also the D-Link DWL-7100AP but my experience these kinds of devices is that they will only bridge with each other and not with a router like a DI-784 say. I tried to find this out from the D-Link web page and docs but it does not specifically say one way or the other.
