I'm looking into starting my wireless network. I was going to get this from netgear: Double 108 router . But then I noticed this: Double 108 A+G , which has a "fast lane" 802.11a channel on it. The website says that the a channel is faster due to the lack of interference and is suitable for video streaming and so on. I'm going to use the router for VNC control of my HTPC using my laptop and so, do I need the 'fast track' or is it just hype? BTW, I live in an apartment building in boston, When I turn on my laptop, it goes hunting for wireless and hacks into whatever it can find before I turn it off. I can normally 'see' between 5 and 10 wireless networks, mostly undsecured of course. Presumably, all this microwave traffic and 2 mobile phones is going to cause interference. Should I spend the extra and access the relatively uncrowded 'a' band?
