    Looking to go "draft" N for setting up my media center (streaming H264 video/DVDs wirelessly from my old MDD G4 in the other room to a MacBook plugged into my HDTV). I found a Netgear I think will work:

    WNR854T

    Anyone have any experience with 802.11n networks and these new phantom "draft N" enabled Macs?

    The new iMacs have the draft 802.11n card but they are not enabled and wont be until Apple posts a firmware update for them.

    As far as I know, there is no standard set for Wireless-N; you could end up re-buying hardware if you don't wait.

    I'd be willing to bet the Airtunes and Base Stations will have draft-n and will work well with the iMac's draft-n
