I think what the article was referring to was a wireless video device, so you could buy a TV and not need a cable/satalite connection to it.

yeah maybe the range is better, but the only real thing fast wireless is good for is in-network file transfers...like i use the WRT54GS for a little speed boost above regular G...dunno if it really works, but it makes me feel like it does. Until FiOS comes out everywhere, we can only brag about our fast routers and know down deep, we really did not need them I guess we are prepared though. *places target on forehead* im dead...lol

Cat 6 is no 'faster' than cat 5.

I'd go with wireless N too if I had the money (which I don't.) I went with G because I'm renting a town-house right now and didn't want to pull up the carpet to run ethernet from room-to-room so I went all wireless, even on my desktop. Wireless B would be far TOO slow to transfer files so I figure G is a good compromise.. I love wireless so much better than wired. It'* very versatile.

Wireless is the way to go these days. I would not pay to have my house wired in Cat 5 unless there was a security issue I had.

Good luck with you N class setup. I wanna get one but I want to wait fo the smoke to settle.

108 MBPs is really useful when you're trying to transfer large amounts of data between nodes within your network. I don't follow "Pre approved" networking standards so I haven't invested in it yet. When the standards are settled on, I'll take a look personally.

If your new connection "Feels" faster, likely what you're experiencing is less latency. This can be as a result of a number of factors:

1) If you live in an area with alot of other wireless networks (IE an apartment bulding or crowded neightborhood with alot of savvy people), you'll get some latency issues.

2) If your home has a metal structure, or you have alot of 2.4 GhZ phones in the general area of your router or network card, you "might" get some latency.

3) You previously had a cheap card or router.. some of them are just total crap.
