I want to link some 802.11g networks. Presumably I can use
repeaters or a point to point WDS, but I was wondering if I
can put an 802.11n router somewhere in there and use its
mesh routing to relay packets like it was a regular ethernet
router. I can't find much about 802.11n with google (any
pointers?) so I'm pretty clueless as to what n does
and if it's interoperable with g.
I see that dd-wrt runs on some 802.11n devices. I saw one
posting which said that for an 802.11n box to talk to a g,
that g has to be enabled on the n box. Does this mean that
the n router is just a g box after that?
