802.11n Wi-Fi standard finally approved Robert Charlton msg:3988996 4:49 am on Sep 14, 2009 (gmt 0) [ 802.11n Wi-Fi standard finally approved news.cnet.com] cnet news - Wireless September 11, 2009
As predicted last month, the IEEE has finally approved the 802.11n high-throughput wireless LAN standard.
Finalization of the new wireless networking standard--which is capable of delivering throughput speeds up to 300 megabits per second (and even higher)-- took exactly seven years from the day it was conceived, or six years from the first draft version. The standard has been through a dozen or so draft versions....

Nice, 7 years later when 300 megabits/second really isn't a big step forward. J_RaD msg:3989312 6:06 pm on Sep 14, 2009 (gmt 0)
it is for wireless ByronM msg:3989320 6:23 pm on Sep 14, 2009 (gmt 0)
300 megabits and MIMO technology means a lot for the non wired home. Especially for implementing wireless media services and low latency gaming devices. johnnie msg:3989443 12:29 am on Sep 15, 2009 (gmt 0)
My 802.11n WIFI-network is working just fine. I don't need anybody's approval for that ;) bill msg:3990108 4:37 am on Sep 16, 2009 (gmt 0)
All the 802.11n devices on the market today are using older, Draft N versions of the standard. Is there a difference now that the standard has been finalized? J_RaD msg:3992231 6:54 pm on Sep 19, 2009 (gmt 0)
If you own your home you should be dropping some cat6 to each desktop, media center and using wireless for laptop, netbook, smartphone. Leosghost msg:3992267 10:30 pm on Sep 19, 2009 (gmt 0)
