Only if the G series computers had gigabit ethernet ports on them which i highly doubt
As long as you are connecting wirelessly, no. Your real-world Airport bandwidth is sooooo far below 100BaseT Ethernet that it woldn't make an appreciable difference to take the last 36 inches at Gigabit speed.G4 iBook connected via wireless
G4 PowerBook connected via wireless
Synology NAS with gigabit capability, connected to the router via ethernet cable.
This is all working for me, and handles my backups and inter-computer chores well.
My question here is, if I were to upgrade my router to a gigabit capable unit, would I get better transfer speeds to and from the NAS unit. in other words would my backups see any boost in speed?
This won't resolved the problem that most of his computers are connected via Airport B/G speed and won't be able to get much more faster than they are today.
