802.11n closer to reality



I see that The Register is reporting that 802.11n rivals have agreed to cooperate on the new standard. 802.11n is to be the wireless networking successor to 802.11a and 802.11b and 802.11g. One of the groups thinks they have 802.11b compatibility, another group had been focusing on 802.11a and 802.11g support. Hopefully this agreement will mean something that will be compatible with all three will be coming out of 802.11n. The biggest interest though is the speed. 540 Mbps is what is expected from the new standard (802.11b gives about 10 Mbps by comparison, with 802.11g at 54 Mbps)

There is no mention in this article of expected range, although from what I recall the range of 802.11n was supposed to be a bit greater than 802.11g.
