Longer range and faster speed are the watchwords for wireless LAN product manufacturers and the criteria by which many of us choose which products to buy. We take a look at three "extended range" WLAN technologies - Atheros' Super G / XR, Airgo Networks' True MIMO and Parker Vision's D2D - to see if they deliver as promised.

Atheros Super-G NeedToKnow - Part 2

In Part 1 of this NTK, I described the elements of Super-G and took a detailed look at normal 11g and Super-G channel overlap. I also presented test results pitting Super-G against "normal" 11g wireless LANs and "normal" 11g WLANs against each other.
