Don't Rush to Upgrade Your Wi-Fi Router

| |

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers is working on baking the latest technology into a new standard, 802.11n. This is where the "N" in Wireless-N comes from. But manufacturers haven't been waiting for the standard to be nailed down, and started putting out "Draft-N" routers and laptop cards last spring.

There is no guarantee that this equipment will be fully compatible with the finished standard, which isn't expected to ratified until 2008. Hence, it would be a bad idea to upgrade until the new standard comes out.
