    802.11n

    Well, I know that the time is coming to eventually retire my 802.11a that is
    used for my WLAN. I do have a lot heavy local (non-internet) WLAN traffic
    that would justify it.

    Is 802.11n really close to everything that it is hyped up to be? What are
    some of the 'gotchas'?

    Probably going to wait for it to get out of draft and be completetly
    finalized...

    Have you ever considered using wires or fiber instead of wireless?

    No.

    Very short range, more susceptible to interference, inconsistent
    performance, and tends to fall back to 802.11g a the slightest
    provocation. More:

    The only good parts is that it's potentially faster than 802.11g and
    that it seems to tolerate room reflections slightly better. You might

    Nope. Once finalized, then it's time for the proprietary enhancements
    and compatibility problems.
