803.11n router's are out...
If you keep an eye on various tech deals and such, you may have noticed that the new 803.11n routers are out. [http://www.bensbargains.net/ktalk/1148081213,685,.shtml]

803.11n = new specification that's not fully standardized yet.

They just claim that it's faster. Which it probably is..but since it's not completely standardized, there's no guarantees that it'll work happily with other toys.

Not to mention the fact that it's absurdly expensive. At $120 for a router? XD Nah. I'll stick with my cheaper pieces of crap. :D 'cause while sometimes they don't work as well as I would like, they work.

So yes, a heads up/warning to say away from buying them. Not like anyone's probably actually thinking about it.. but.. yeah.

...maybe I'm trying to talk myself out to buying it just to play with, and be like, omg, pretty new toy!

so much to do, so little time!

Erf! Sounds like a marketer's dream, and support's nightmare..

Mm, I think I'll sit tight for now, until things are properly ratified. I'm fine with 802.11g for now.. more bandwidth in a LAN takes much lower priority for me than real speed for wireless broadband, whether from WiMAX towers, something from satellite, or even that high altitude blimp venture I read about. (Wonder if they're actually proceeding?)

I guess the choice here depends on the purposes. If you need just a connection - you will be glad with every available standard. If you need something cool - well nobody can stop you to spend all your money.
