Click here for more information about 802.11a IEEE 802.11y-2008 extended operation of 802.11a to the licensed 3.7 GHz band. Increased power limits allow a range up to 5,000 m. As of 2009, it is only being licensed in the United States by the FCC 802.11ad - WiGig - a standard under development which will provide throughput in the 5 GHz band. This specification will enable higher multi-station WLAN throughput of at least 1 gigabit per second and a maximum single link throughput of at least 500 megabits per second, by using wider RF bandwidth (80 or 160 MHz), more streams (up to 8), and high-density modulation (up to 256 QAM). 802.11ah - Physical Layer 1 standards such as 802.1ah (including G.SHDSL, GigE, EPON), Ethernet 100baseFX, 1000baseSX/LX and legacy xDSL. 802.11b - [Wi-Fi] 802.11b and 802.11g standards use the unlicensed 2.4 GHz band.

REVma or 802.11ma, as it was called, created a single document that merged 8 amendments (802.11a, b, d, e, g, h, i, j) with the base standard. Upon approval on March 8, 2007, 802.11REVma was renamed to the then-current base standard IEEE 802.11-2007. 802.11n - throttles WLAN throughput. 802.11n is an amendment which improves upon the previous 802.11 standards by adding multiple-input multiple-output antennas (MIMO). 802.11n operates on both the 2.4 GHz and the lesser used 5 GHz bands. Support for 5 GHz bands is optional. It operates at a maximum net data rate from 54 Mbit/s to 600 Mbit/s. The IEEE has approved the amendment and it was published in October 2009.[14][15] Prior to the final ratification, enterprises were already migrating to 802.11n networks based on the Wi-Fi Alliance's certification of products conforming to a 2007 draft of the 802.11n proposal. - IEEE 802.11 OMG - 802.11n was FINALLY ratified Sept 14, 2009 802.11.n seems to not be capable of broadcasting even compressed HD in a reliable manner (Home Theater Magazine). 802.11n can utilize either the 2.4GHz or 5GHz band, at a rate of 540Mbps, by utilizing MIMO antennas. The finaal 802.11n spec was finalized in the Fall of 2009. (Home Theater Magazine) The real-world throughput ie expected to be at least 100 Mbit/s. MIMO has become an 802.11 standard, and will be used with 802.11n equipment.

ETHERNET over POWER (house wiring)

Devices to send Ethernet over house-hold Power lines. NOTE - YOU WILL NEVER ATTAIN THE HIGHEST SPEED OF THE SPECIFICATION I am using them to hook up Tivo, Blu-Ray Disk Player (with Streaming video) and I'll see if XBOX has an RJ-45 Port (I don't remember) to my GigE Ethernet switch. YES, XBOX does have a regular Ethernet port. so I am using it. If you go this way (EOP), I would ONLY go with the: Netgear XAVB5001 Powerline AV 500 Ultra Adapter kit - new March 2012 NO OTHER BRAND, NO OTHER MODEL (my opinion). Netgear XAVB5001 Powerline AV 500 Ultra Adapter kit - new March 2012 You can use at least 4 of these, perhaps more. Up to 500 Mbps HAS Gigabit Ethernet Port $ 138 CompUSA. Got mine for $ 105 Contains Two Powerline AV 500 Adapters (XAV500). Mail-order would probably be cheaper, but I was in a hurry. I got rid of my TRENDnet TPL-401E2K - 500 Mbps Powerline AV Adapter Kit, (I had problems with them) and switched to these (Netgear XAVB5001 ) - worked flawlessly - no problems. Netgear XAVB2501 Powerline AV 200 Ultra Adapter kit up to 200 Mbps 10/100 Ethernet (NOT GigE Ethernet [not Gigabit Ethernet]) CompUSA has them in the store - $ 100 (3/2012) I FEEL THESE ARE TOO SLOW FOR MY PURPOSES. Netgear XETB1001 Powerline Network Adapter - RJ-45, HomePlug, up to 85Mbps I have one, works fine - about $70 - I think it's being discontinued? - YES Does NOT say how many you can use in one house LAN: 10/100Mbps I THINK I FEEL THESE ARE TOO SLOW FOR MY PURPOSES.I FEEL THESE ARE TOO SLOW FOR MY PURPOSES. TRENDnet TPL-401E2K - 500 Mbps Powerline AV Adapter Kit - HAS GigE PORT $ 130 - I just (3/5/2012) bought a couple - uses 128 bit AES Can use Sixteen (16) of these (I think it's one at the Ethernet Switch and 16 others throughout the house. (seems like you would buy One Pair and 15 other Single units) I'll let you know when I've tested them 10/100/1000Mbps Auto-MDIX RJ45 Port Speed: - Powerline: Up to 500Mbps - Ethernet: up to 2Gbps with Full Duplex Mode I did not have good luck with these units. The problem could be operator error, a rare bad 500 Mbps Powerline AV Adapter Kit - I don't know the reason, but these units continually complained about not being able to find a DHCP Server. I finally trashed them and bought some Netgear Powerline AV 500 Adapter kits - the Netgears worked immediately, and have given me NO problems what-so-ever. You may have an entirely different experience. Testing only two units (as I did) is not a big enough sample to draw statistically valid conclusions. My PERSONAL OPINION is to go with the Netgear Powerline AV 500 Adapter kits. TRENDnet TPL-303E2K 200Mbps Powerline AV Adapter Kit - NO GigE PORT $ 80 at CompUSA - I know nothing about this one Can use Eight (8) of these (I think it's one at the Switch and 7 others throughout the house.
