Does the CISCO DPW632 wireless dongle still work with the 'new' NBN router. This is an 802.11N wireless adapter, which I had with the previous broadband router (from optus). Is there some other method or that is required for a wireless connection. The wireless adapter is a USB plugin-to-the-USB type. Can this work with your current new NBN router (black tissue box 'new'Sagecom F@ST 5366 TN one?
And ýes' things do work with an ethernet cable - but who wants that running across doorways?
To properly meet the specifications for WiFi, all newer WiFi is backwards compatible with older iterations. So while the current Optus device supports up to 802.11ac, it is also backwards with 802.11a, 801.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n. So whilst it's unlikely that Optus will have specifically tested your Cisco device, it should "just work". You may just find that you don't get the same speed as you would using a newer 802.11ac WiFi dongle.
