I was wondering....... Since my internet is DSL would it make a difference to switch over to wireless G? I mean its not like I can download off the internet @ 10mbs and I dont share files, so is it really worth it?

Assuming you already have a wireless-B network (you didn't make it quite clear), no it's not worth the upgrade in your case.

I just recently switched to B due to the requirement of transfering media files from my HTPC to my file server...other than that, I ran B for years, and its fine.

You make a good point that many people overlook. Your connection is only going to be as fast as the slowest link. Alot of people think they need G speeds only to be throttled down to 3Mbps at their WAN port.

well if you transfer stuff from one computer to another often i'd say its worth it. if you just have some computers on a hub for internet, nope.
