communication speed due to radio interference. Taking this into consideration, the IEEE 802.11g products are designed to reduce the communication speed to ensure
communication with IEEE 802.11b products. When the communication speed is not as fast as expected, changing the wireless channel on the access point may
increase the communication speed. *9 The communication speed varies depending on the distance between communication devices, existence of obstacles between
such devices, the device configuration, the radio conditions, and the software in use. In addition, communication may be cut off depending on the radio conditions.
