Submission + - 802.11n Should Be Finalized By September (pcmag.com)

adeelarshad82 writes: It's probable that the 802.11n standard will finally be approved at a scheduled IEEE meeting this September, ending a contentious round of infighting that has delayed the standard for years. For the 802.11n standard, the standards process has been an agonizingly slow process, dating back almost five years to 2004, when 802.11g held sway. But the standard struggled throughout 2005 and 2006, when members supposedly settled on the TGnSync standard, then formed the Enhanced Wireless Consortium in 2006 to speed the process along. A a draft version of 802.11n was approved in January 2006, prompting the first wave of routers based on the so-called draft-n standard shortly thereafter.
