SPOTLIGHT: More draft-n products

Linksys is showing its draft 802.11n wireless products, based on the IEEE draft 802.11n standard, thus joining Netgear and Buffalo Technology as vendors with draft-n products. Linksys said its Wireless-N Broadband Router (WRT300N, about $150) and Notebook Adapter (WPC300N, about $120) are available at BestBuy.com, with other locations to be available shortly. The company says the new equipment offers up to four times the range and up to 12 times the throughput of its wireless-g products. As was the case with its earlier SRS product, the new Wireless-N offerings use MIMO technology to transmit two streams of data simultaneously over multiple channels. To support the draft specification, Linksys says its products will provide mixed-mode operation and backward compatibility with 802.11g and 802.11b products. Report
