AT&T-branded Wi-Fi equipment to hit shelves

Major U.S. electronics retailers BestBuy and CompUSA are set to sell 54 megabit per second wireless home networking equipment stamped with the AT&T brand, sources said Monday. The sources also said long-distance carrier AT&T is interested in selling the equipment.

The 6800G wireless router costing $100 and three adapters for either laptops or personal computers priced between $80 and $90 will be built and distributed by VTech, which has the exclusive right to sell products using the AT&T moniker, VTech representatives said. The new wireless equipment uses the 802.11g standard, which is five times faster and compatible with the majority of wireless access points already in circulation using the 802.11b standard.
