STEP 1
Frame bursting helps in mixed mode environments. For. ex: If you have Wireless G and wireless B linked to the same router, frame burst helps in this type of mixed modes. The performance and bandwidth is high in wireless connection in single device.
STEP 2
It works well when a single device is transmitting at a time. That means not many devices at a time.
STEP 3
It may reduce the performance when too many devices are connected to an access point. Usually 54Mb bandwidth is shared between the devices connected to an access point.
STEP 4
All other devices will be burdened, if one device hogs the channel. Frame burst helps to receive/send large burst of data by letting a single device hog the channel,
STEP 5
Although it have some advantages, why it should be disabled some times? Because, turning on degrade the performance, so Linksys does a normal approach to disable it by default.
STEP 6
The user should decide whether to turn on the Frame burst or not depending upon their usage. If you need faster performance, turn off frame burst on your Linksys.
