Introduction

Revised March 31, 2003

The wireless networking world is a' buzz with the new kid in town, 802.11g. As with most new technologies, some of the buzz is hype, other is rumor, and it's hard to tell the difference! Fortunately, one of the advantages that I have is detailed test data from the first products to hit the shelves, which I can use to help separate fact from fiction. I've also been busy corresponding with both the chip and networking product companies involved in the draft-802.11g market-share battle, most of whom have been very helpful in helping me get a better understanding of this new technology.

Part 1 of this NTK will try to address many of the questions that are being asked about 802.11g and draft-802.11g products. It will also try to answer the practical questions: Should I buy now? And if so, what should I buy?

Although I originally intended to put everything into one NTK, I found that there was just too much to put into one article! Part 2 presents more of the test data that I've used to draw my conclusions, including test results from both Broadcom and Intersil-based products. Let's get started!
