802.11G : From Draft to Standard Firmware Upgrade?
So when the IEEE finally passes 802.11G as a standard it may see a few revisions....do you guys expect that the Airport Extreme hardware can have its firmware flashed to correct for those revisions? Everyone knows that this was an early-adopter move by Apple, I'm just curious as to how big a deal this is....especially since there are some industry wags who are saying that 802.11a will be the ultimate victor in this particular little fight. I think that rev. b is pretty damned well established now and that other vendors/users would want to go with rev. g because of its backwards compatibility. I personally don't expect for there to be an overnight switch to 802.11G by hot spots around the world, but it would be an embarassing gaffe for Apple if things go kablooey here.
