i love the blazing speed i get from comcast but i hate the wires attached to my laptop. i want to go wireless not to share my internet connection but just to have the simplicity of being wired free. i have an apartment and don't use a desk or table, i enjoy being able use my notebook on my couch,balcony,bed,etc... now here is my question do i go 802.11b of coming i understand the difference there is in speed, well sort of, i just use my pc to go on the internet, i don't chat, send files or data or nothing like that. i just enjoy the surfing. 802.11b slow down my internet connections that i have from comcast?

Let's see how my memory is... 802.11b max speed is 11Mbps, while 802.11g is 54Mbps. Comcast internet is 3Mbps. What you need to worry more about is interference from a microwave oven, or, more importantly 2.4Ghz cordless phones, as they share frequency range with 802.11b/g.
