Related questions which might bring this back on topic...
-What are the percentages of adoption for "B", "G", and "N" networks
-Are there any Linux drivers for "N" networks?
-There was a presentation a couple of months ago where a map of wireless
points was displayed. The people running the place where I volunteer
were given a "G" access point for public access. The only thing is they
don't know where it is (go figure). Could someone point me to a map of
the downtown, North of Chinatown and around the Point Douglas area,
containing both visible networks and streets?
-For the people I volunteer with could someone (off the top of your head
without research) give me the range of the various networks? I've been
telling people "B" will cover a small building, "G" will cover about a
block, and "N" will do about a mile.
