802.11n Draft 2.0 certification underway
Several wireless networking vendors' products certified as compliant with 802.11n Draft 2.0
Netgear announced today that two of its Draft 802.11n wireless products have been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance as in compliance with draft 2.0 of the 802.11n spec. This certification ensures that the product in question is interoperable with products from other vendors, that it adheres to the latest security protection schemes, and that it's backward-compatible with previous generations of Wi-Fi equipment (such as 802.11g and 802.11b products). Netgear's RangeMax NEXT Wireless-N Router Gigabit Edition (WNR854T) and
Other networking heavyweights are in various stages of testing and certification, as well.
Unfortunately, it's clear that mid-2007 finalized spec isn't going to happen (this was the date being thrown around last year), so now we're looking at 2008.
