In addition to being faster than their predecessors, new Wi-Fi-certified 802.11g wireless products promise better protection from snoops, thanks to Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) encryption technology. But even though the WPA standard was introduced about a year ago, some 802.11g products may not support it.

Isn't the 802.11i security standard the one everyone's waiting for with the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP)? I think everyone knew these other measures like WPA were stop-gap.
