	Related questions which might bring this back on topic...

-What are the percentages of adoption for "B", "G", and "N" networks 
these days?

-Are there any Linux drivers for "N" networks?

-There was a presentation a couple of months ago where a map of wireless 
points was displayed. The people running the place where I volunteer 
were given a "G" access point for public access. The only thing is they 
don't know where it is (go figure). Could someone point me to a map of 
the downtown, North of Chinatown and around the Point Douglas area, 
containing both visible networks and streets?

-For the people I volunteer with could someone (off the top of your head 
without research) give me the range of the various networks? I've been 
telling people "B" will cover a small building, "G" will cover about a 
block, and "N" will do about a mile.
