802.11n vote pushed back

The 802.11n market is in a state of flux these days as the second draft for the proposed standard is being pushed back several months. A vote isn't likely until January, and gear makers are clamoring to get 802.11n products out the door as fast as possible to seed the market and gain a competitive advantage. Some already have released products based on Draft 1.0 of the standard, which promises a boost in range and speed of WiFi. But Draft 1.0 was voted down in May, and IEEE 802.11 working group members couldn't even reach a consensus. Now the IEEE has to sort through some 12,000 comments that were filed in response to Draft 1.0.
