Linksys rolls out draft 802.11n gear for networks and laptops

Marc Perton

Add Linksys to the growing number of companies rolling out products that adhere to the draft 802.11n standard. The company's new additions are the Wireless-N Broadband Router ( WRT300N) and Wireless-N Notebook Adapter (WPC300N ). As you've probably already figured out, the WRT300N can connect your equipment to your broadband network and serve as an access point for wireless devices -- such as a laptop equipped with the WPC300N (or, of course, most 802.11b/g devices). The WRT300N is expected to retail for about $150, while the WPC300N should go for about $120. Seems a small price to pay for 100 mbps throughput -- if you can really get that kind of speed, that is.
