When a 2.4 Ghz wireless N network has a G or B device introduced, the entire network slows down to that speed. If that slow device is removed, how long will it take for the remaining devices to renegotiate back to N, and is that process adjustable inside an N router?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Not really answering your question, but a solution to sidestep this whole issue:
Use two wireless routers (or two in each location),
with one serving N clients and the other serving g/b clients.

Then the N clients won’t have the severe slowdowns at all.

Another tip, don’t use TKIP, stick with AES.
