IEEE 802.11g Ratified
Well, it seems as though the IEEE 802.11b wireless networking standard has just been given a speed boost, with the new IEEE 802.11g technology raising the peak bandwidth speed from 11 Mbps to a whopping 54 Mbps. "The added transmission speed gives wireless networks based on IEEE 802.11b (often called Wi-Fi) the ability to serve up to four to five times more users than they now do. It also opens the possibility for using IEEE 802.11 networks in more demanding applications, such as wireless multimedia video transmission and broadcast MPEG."
