    www.mosr.com has reported that apple has demonstrated a 112mbps version of it popular airport

    here a piece from the article
    Apple has reportedly demonstrated a 112Mbps version of its Airport wireless networking technology for educators in certain West Coast US locations, in anticipation that the new standard, which is up to ten times faster than the current Airport and can sustain original Airport speeds at distances upwards of 50% greater than today's devices. Release dates vary between reports, but the general consensus is Apple will release at least a partial implementation of this technology at Macworld New York this summer, just in time for the 2002-2003 school year buying season.

    I want it...ASAP!
    I wonder what its maximum distance will be to operate from the base, or whatever it will use...

    112Mbps is crazy! If they do it that would be excellent. 802.11b goes at about 11Mbps, 802.11g, the next gen of wireless at 2.4 GHz does 20+Mbps. If Apple can tweak that much out of g, all I can say is WhooHoo!
