Wi-Fi Reaches The Speed Of Ethernet

Wireless networks may be convenient to set up, but wired ethernet has always been faster. Now a new generation of Wi-Fi products is challenging ethernet’s superiority for high-bandwidth apps. We sampled some of the first of these Wi-Fi products–Netgear’s $180 RangeMax 240 Wireless Router and $100 Notebook Adapter–and found that at close range, even with encryption enabled, data speeds were only a little bit slower than on a standard 10/100 megabits-per-second ethernet network.
