It would be a mistake to jump on the 802.11g bandwagon right now. The device
manufacturers have NOT agreed on a standard so there are issues with these
early devices wrt interoperability. One vendor's 802.11g device doesn't
necessarily understand/interoperate with another vendor's. There is also
some question still about 802.11b compatibility. Wait until there is an
agreed upon standard such that all vendor's products play nice with other
vendor's products and truly are back-compatible with 802.11b.
