More Pre-standard WiFi On The Way
Who needs to wait for standards? That seems to be the attitude of many WiFi equipment makers who didn’t wait for 802.11g to be settled before releasing g equipment, and it appears to not be stopping folks like Broadcom from releasing 802.11n solutions before that standard is set as well. Again, just like with 802.11g, there probably isn’t much reason to jump the gun on a purchase of such equipment unless the local network speeds are really necessary. Also, anyone buying such equipment needs to be aware that what they buy might not eventually work with the actual standard.
