Here's the big gorilla issue. Ready?

Today's WiFi networks and in fact almost all home networking require folk to learn more than they expected. The elephant in the room is that folk don't want to know what a DNS is. They just want it to work.

Is it time for a new networking standard?

I think the OP...

... would learn a lot by looking at the "N" issues v "G". Using routers as a WAP, router placement (not in basement), etc. Also powerline, extenders antennae etc, could make a good project to turn in if well researched. I agree with your comment about home networking, can be a bit much for some, but not everybody wants to dive into things they're not sure of.

Here my big N issue is the non-overlapping channel issue.

But the biggest issue I see today is asking folk that want to install a Smart TV and blammo. They are getting hit with more than they bargained for. IP Networking got us so far but it's creaking under the weight of not being automatic enough.

Totally agree.

if you're surrounded by "N"s it's enough to break it. i don't have a smart TV, so no probs.

My example was just that.

My segue-way is that setting up a home network is getting too hard for some. I have the background to deal with this because I wrote router code in the 90's and know to carry spares on a call. But imagine the new user. It's like we tossed a toolbox loaded with tools at them and yelled "Catch!"
