Second-generation 802.11a NTK

The wireless networking world seems to have lost interest in 802.11a wireless LAN products.

802.11g NeedToKnow - Part 1

Tags:
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.
