Thought I'd pass along an interest article (in PC Magazine) entitled "Is
Wi-Fi Headed toward an Early Grave?"
A rather mixed prediction since the article predicts 802.11n will
replace WiFi and 802.11n can operate in both 2.4 and 5 GHz allocations.
We can only hope that 802.11a (5 GHz) and 802.11n operating at 5 GHz
will take some of the heat off our 2.4 GHz band. The 5 GHz allocation
offers more immunity to co-interference and allows for higher data
rates. Perhaps the availability of still higher data rates will offer
incentive (over the long term) to get users to opt for the higher
frequency (above 2.4 GHz) networks.
Maybe I'm overly optimistic??
