    About time. Must be tiring work trying to get everyone to agree on something.

    Good to know that it's finally being ratified, when would be the best time to upgrade to n then?

    yeah, just look at the fun that occurred when HD+DVD and Blue-ray launched

    I've had no issues with my 802.11n hardware functioning either at 802.11n and 802.11g with a wide range of devices from a wide range of manufacturers and it's been some of the easiest to set up as well

    Re: News - 802.11n Wi-Fi to be standardised... at last

    i have a netgear 802.11n compatible router but its about a year old.. not sure how that will impact its compatability with other 'n' devices but all our household wireless devices are g and i tend to stick to wired most of the time so not of great impact to me at the moment anyway.

    Good to hear they are finally moving on though.

    I recently picked up a 802.11n Airport Extreme thing by Apple and it has been running great. If you've ever configured any of the Airport line-up before, setting it up is a breeze.

    So much so, when I was in Singapore (that's where I got it) on testing it out in the hotel room, I was able to quickly set it up to route between the hotel (WAN) supply of net-juice and provide IPs via DHCP to any connecting Wifi clients. Speeds were decent and so far, I'm quite happy with 802.11n (draft).

    Should be interesting to see what impact the final firmware tweaks would have on performance.
