Re: 802.11AC - Next gen wireless standard

I like the specs for 802.11A...

It should open up nicely now that it's being adopted.

Re: 802.11AC - Next gen wireless standard

This will be a good thing long term. My workstation is hardwired to the server (for backups etc.). My wife's goes over 802.11N, which is ok, but backups are a bit slower.
