Wireless SRX technology


Today's commonly available devices are rated at 14Mbps. The next generation
will be 200Mbps. I have seen the actual throughput of wireless b/g drop off
rather quickly depending on what is between the access point and station and
which way the antenna is facing. I have seen the powerline equipment work
with no degradation in the signal across the span of a house and know of at
least one installation in a hotel (to give the guests Internet access). 14M
is also a bit faster than most cable/DSL connections.
