I am a bit confused since I just finished installing my new Gigabit and wireless N network.
What should be my maximum wireless speed in 11G mode?

11 Mbit/s is the max for B
54 Mbit/s is the max for G.
248 Mbit/s is the max for N

Thanks, I got myself confused there for a second. Getting identical internet speeds on wireless as on wired now from my cable modem. It's all good.

Lol... don't worry, everyone gets it confused... but ya your wireless is only as fast as your slowest connection, which would be your internet in this case...

There is 108 Mbit wireless G.

Just to name one.

As well as Wireless N can go up to 300mbps

The 108mbps 802.11g isn't the standard 802.11g. Most vendors so called 108mbps or Speedboost won't interoperate with each other.

I ran a d-link 802.11g 108 with a netgear router 108 no problem.

Yes like Network-D@wg is getting at these increased speed are not part of the specs that were put down for the standard. These companies have gone and taken the specs and improved on them... 248 is what the N speed standard is suppose to be but many are going to stretch 300 out of it... The N standard has not even been ratified yet last time I checked and a lot of this N stuff being sold is Pre-N spec stuff.

Shawn is right. 802.11n is still pre-spec, and a lot of so called N gear today, might not be fully N compliant when the IEEE finalizes it.

T-pot, the d-link and netgear are based on the same interchangable hardware, just different names.

Just like how Linksys = Asus = Buffalo = on and on.
