Next generation wireless

Posted under toys | no comments |

Who needs standards, anyway. The wireless industry is pushing hard to get us to part from our money for the latest ‘pre-standard’ gear – in this case, the pre-n stuff. Lots of vendors are out there with products in the market, but what I really would be willing to pay money for, no one seems to be shipping yet. A pre-n bridge. Everyone has an access point and a Card-Bus card. Some have a USB adapter (none of which have Linux drivers, of course). If they added bridge mode to the APs, so many people would gladly give them the money for two of them. But no dice.

If anyone sees a pre-n bridge out there, please let me know :-)
