    Actually, this article over at osOpinion seems to believe it will be a high speed wireless version of Firewire, though his description actually of the Firewire protocol over the Airport protocol (802.11e).

    I believe the update to Apple's current implementation of Airport mainly was a security update. I think it improved the level of encryption, allowed for AOL connections and some other minor improvements. This was not yet a move to a different, faster version of the 802.11 protocol.
