I found this interesting. The guys at Technoyard have posted a roundup on Wireless Networking gear using the increasing popular Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11. As well as comparing different networking devices, they give a good run down on what each tecnology is all about.
The next hot thing to hit the wireless networking market is the 802.11 standard by the IEEE. (Institute for Electronics and Electrical Engineering) Currently there are two main standards introduced, the 802.11a and 802.11b standards. However now there's also 802.11G which is newer to both these standards and is said to compete with the .a standard(will discuss details later). The networking devices we'll be dealing with here today are based on the 802.11b standard. Simply put it, this is a 11Mb/s wireless Ethernet standard, and as with Bluetooth product which conform to the 802.11b specification will in most occurrences work among each other with ease.Check it out!
