What is the protocol of the router?  I need it to be 802.11b in order to connect my device.

What 'router' do you have?  Have you looked at its manual/specifications?

Thank you.  It is an Xfinity router - no other brands on the unit.  I received no booklet or anything with it.

What does the label on the bottom/side/back say?  Should identify the model number somewhere.  The manuals/user guides/info are available on the Xfinity web site.

AFAIK, al of the Comcast supplied gateway devices are backward compatible with 802.11b
