EnvyNews writes: In a bold move to embrace 802.11g before the specification is ratified, SMC releases its own Access Point product with an integrated 4-port Broadband Router. In this review, we compare this product with SMC’s 802.11b predecessor, and report on SMC’s PCI 54g product for desktop computers…
Here’s a snip:
“Once you go WiFi, it is hard to go back to a wired network at home or the office. The freedom one achieves with a truly wireless network - from PDAs to laptops, and now even desktop workstations - is one that is hard to express unless you have taken the plunge yourself. About the only thing stopping the power-user from making the Switch was the relatively slow-speed of 802.11b. However, now with 802.11g and its 54Mbit/sec connectivity, 2003 could very well be the year of WiFi.”
