802.11n Wi-Fi standard finally approved [news.cnet.com]

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.

My 802.11n WIFI-network is working just fine. I don't need anybody's approval for that ;)

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?

If you own your home you should be dropping some cat6 to each desktop, media center and using wireless for laptop, netbook, smartphone.
