Broadcom chips get Wi-Fi group's nod

Broadcom announced Wednesday its 802.11g chips received certification from an industry group, the Wi-Fi Alliance, for 802.11b interoperability. The certification means that products using Broadcom's 802.11g wireless chips will work with 802.11b clients while, according to Broadcom, providing five times the bandwidth for 802.11g clients.

The Irvine, Calif.-based company also announced the release of software that upgrades access points with the latest version of the 802.11g draft specification--version 6.1. Broadcom is addressing some of the concerns surrounding 802.11g-based products.
