Re: 5Ghz WiFi

It's not a question of "if"....  it WILL happen, and indeed, has already 
started.  And remember, with computers, the technology drives the 
marketplace, and not vice versa.  Manufacturers will put 5.8 GHz WiFi in 
laptops, forcing consumers to chuck their 2.4 GHz WAPs and migrate to 5.8. 
2.4 GHz phones will die, and be replaced with 5.8 GHz. models. This, as I 
have already stated (see my earlier message with subject "The REAL future of 
S-Band"), will result in a QUIETER S-band in less than 5 years, contrary to 
the design team's assumption that it will get worse.
