Problems With Centrino

Almost embarrassed to admit that I had skimmed the beginning of this article this morning, and never got around to the end where they quote Techdirt Wireless’s own Derek Kerton (and link to one of his blog posts here) talking various wireless problems people have with Centrino chips. Most of the article focuses on the recently discovered problems with using Centrino chips when trying to access a VPN, but also discusses various other problems associated with adopting a “first model year chip”. Clearly, Centrino has some kinks that need to be worked out. What surprises me, actually, is that this information hadn’t come out sooner. You would think, in the time since it was launched plenty of people would have tried to access their VPNs with it. Either way, I don’t doubt that these problems will be fixed fairly quickly, and many will forget they ever existed.
