If you keep an eye on various tech deals and such, you may have noticed that the new 803.11n routers are out. [http://www.bensbargains.net/ktalk/1148081213,685,.shtml]

803.11n = new specification that's not fully standardized yet.

They just claim that it's faster. Which it probably is..but since it's not completely standardized, there's no guarantees that it'll work happily with other toys.

Not to mention the fact that it's absurdly expensive. At $120 for a router? XD Nah. I'll stick with my cheaper pieces of crap. :D 'cause while sometimes they don't work as well as I would like, they work.

So yes, a heads up/warning to say away from buying them. Not like anyone's probably actually thinking about it.. but.. yeah.

...maybe I'm trying to talk myself out to buying it just to play with, and be like, omg, pretty new toy!

so much to do, so little time!

It's interesting... BSSIDs appear to be clustered around certain things, sometimes.

Like, there's a large cluster of 00:13:10 (linksys?) and 00:13:46 and 00:14:BF (also linksys?). There's a few 00:12:88 and 00:0F:B5 and 00:09:5B (netgear?)

then there's SilverWirelessNetworks, our local expensive 'wireless' ISP. Which is all centered around 00:02:6F:05.

:: points to the tags:: That's what it is.. a usb 2.0 dongle with a small flip-up-able antenna that adds bluetooth, 802.11b/g support in one dongle. Alas,

Current price looks like: 47.19 Euro = 58.32684 U.S. dollars, and only available from weird places: http://www.bettercomponents.be/index.php?manufacturers_id=16&sort=2a&page=4

Why am I looking for? I want a usb dongle that'll let me hack into wireless networks I don't have access to yet, with KisMac. Unfortunately, the above longshine thingie uses the Zydas chipset that's not supported yet. At least, not by MacOS X/BSD. Linux, yes... but... Marf. It also means I won't be able to use Hawking's Mini 802.11g USB 2.0 adapter ($4.99 + $5.99 s/h) [ link | http://dealnews.com/deals/Hawking-Mini-802-11-g-USB-2-0-Adapter-for-4-99-after-rebate/91428.html ] XP
