FAQ: What is 54g-LRS mode?


 The information in this article applies to the following products:
   
  • 54g Wireless DSL/Cable Gateway Router (F5D7230-4)
  •      

     Summary
        What is 54g-LRS mode?

     More Info
        In some cases, older 802.11b clients may not be compatible with 54g wireless. These adapters tend to be of lesser design or use older drivers or technology. 54g-LRS (Limited Rate Support) allows these clients to be compatible with the newer 54g technology. Switching to this mode can solve problems that sometimes occur with these clients. If you suspect that you are using a client adapter that falls into this category of adapters, first check with the adapter vendor to see if there is a driver update. If there is no driver update available, switching to 54g-LRS mode may fix your problem. Please note that switching to 54g-LRS mode may decrease 54g performance. It is not recommended you use this mode unless you have a very specific reason to do so. This mode exists only to solve unique problems that may occur with some 802.11b client adapters and is NOT necessary for interoperability of 54g and 802.11b standards.
