Why is no one suing the Wireless LAN industry?


George Ou: It’s routine for many wireless LAN equipment makers to sell bastardized variations of the 802.11g standard that promise “turbo g” or “super g” speeds of 108 megabits per second when in reality they top out at around 30 megabits per second even under the best conditions. Even the new “pre-N” products that utilize Airgo’s MIMO technology top out around 40 megabits per second yet they brag about “600%” improved performance over regular 802.11g when in reality it’s more like a 60% improvement.

Well, it’s not like any one ever gets 100 Mbps out of a port on their 100-baseT router . . .
