Devices WILL be able to connect to 802.11ac router With the other device announced, you can connect to the 802.11ac router.
Put the ethernet bridge in another room and hook up a laptop, an AppleTV, an XBox, etc to provide very high speed connectivity for moving HD video around the house wirelessly.
AirStation AC1300 / N450 4-Port Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Ethernet Bridge WLI-H4-D1300, a versatile dual band media bridge that extends the capabilities of wireless networks. Consumers can now connect up to four network-enabled wired devices, such as media players and gaming consoles to their 802.11ac network.
Re: WZR-HP-AG300H fiasco
said by axiomatic:Wait a few days and you can buy the Netgear 802ac/n. They announced 17 days ago it would hit the streets this month. Possibly helpful: Arstechnica ditty and Netgear's specs page. Anyone seen this broadcom SoC yet?
Sorry Buffalo... after the complete and total fiasco that was your WZR-HP-AG300H product I flat out refuse to ever give you another shot ever again
Sooo, how many early adopters will get a rude awakening about the number of 802.11b/g devices on or frequently visiting their LAN?
Re: OH NOES!!!
said by jap: I agree with setting the standards, I just wish the IEEE would enforce the rules on the "PRE" release crowd. said by tshirt:
IEEE standards commitees are such a clusterfuck.
I'll go with your first sentence: onus on the equipment manufacturers.
time after time they all pledge to wait, and when "someone" chooses to violate they do nothing.

Re: 5Ghz and Wireless ISP
said by Interference :+1.
This product right out of the gate is going to have issues. As a wireless ISP we already use
unlicensed spectrum to get the Internet to our subscribers. 2.4Ghz is already a disaster and we tired of interference complaints of competing with cordless phones, home access points and lots of other devices.
The new complete use of all spectrum devices is going to be a disaster for individuals who don't realize what is already out here.
The FCC won't open up new unlicensed areas to operate and eventuality will make all unlicensed useless.
Somebody is going to get hurt and will continue to wonder who?

Re: Fast... but let's see how far.
said by rebus9:Thats' why you should be using the DECT 6.0 phones which use the 1.9GHz frequency.
Yet to be seen is the range of 5 GHz inside the household. The higher the frequency, the more it's attenuated by obstacles in the path-- doors, walls, and floors/ceilings (in multi-story homes).
If you remember the days of 46/49 MHz cordless phones, we could walk halfway down the block and still use them. Our 5.8 GHz phones today will barely reach out into the driveway.
