Is that about to stop wireless vendors? Heck no. How about the fact that using 802.11n networks in the vicinity can
completely disable conventional 802.11b/g networks
? The three chip makers whose 802.11n implementations are being used by the vendors are Airgo, Broadcom and Marvel:
While Airgo’s third generation product achieves record breaking throughput, it annihilates any legacy 802.11 b/g product in the vicinity and effectively shuts them down. The other products from Broadcom and Marvel weren’t quite as devastating to the neighbors, but the damage is still severe.
Whoopsie. So, in other words, if you’re looking to get the highest speed possible, you may want to buy a deadbolt for your door, or else you’re going to have some angry neighbors breaking it down.
