    Super G Methods Overview

    In wireless devices that have an Atheros Communications chipset with the Super G feature, you can enable Super G, which can increase the user data throughput rate up to 4 Mbps for 802.11a and 802.11g clients by using the following methods:

    • Bursting—Allows the device to transmit multiple frames in a burst rather than pausing after each frame.
    • Fast frames—Allows more information per frame to be transmitted by allowing a larger-than-standard frame size.
    • Compression—Allows link-level hardware compression to be performed by a built-in data compression engine.

    By default, this feature is disabled.

    If wireless clients do not support Super G and the security device has Super G enabled, they can still connect to the wireless network, but the Super G feature is not available.
