Anyhow, 802.11g doesn't cut it. If it doesn't do 5 GHz band, it's not worth it.
I live in the boonies. I can see zero other APs at my house. I don't even cook with a microwave. 802.11g works great here, I regularly get real-world speeds over 20Mbps. Well, as regularly as I use a client capable of such speeds. My SEMC Xperia Play struggles to pass 1Mbps for most operations. Possibly part of that is the very slow sdcard.
