First 802.11a/b/g routers ship
Well, the first of the Atheros routers have shipped. Basically, everything but the kitchen sink is now available. Does 802.11a, 11b and 11g, so you get high bandwidth and it works in both the 2.4 and 5GHz ranges. Street of $129, so
* “D-Link AirPremier AG DI-784”:http://d-link.com/products/?pid=299. Also supports the Super G mode.
* “Zipzoomfly.com’;http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=252009&ps=sw7. Has the D-link at $129.
Others will announce shortly I think, but this unit looks like one that will have some legs, although new standards keep evolving. The earlier DI-624 that I got is 802.11b/g and has really impressive range and the turbo mode does work in homes. Very fast.
