Except that this article seems to completely skip 802.11n, and while it
mentions 802.11a in the Performance and Speed section, states in a more
prominent section "Wi-Fi uses spectrum near 2.4 GHz, which is
standardized and unlicensed by international agreement, although the
exact frequency allocations vary slightly in different parts of the
world, as does maximum permitted power." It otherwise ignores te 5GHz
band.

Time for an update...

Except that the corresponding text on the new page linked there ("Main
article", <http://wireless.navas.us/wiki/Wi-Fi ) appears to be
identical. Searching for "11n" returns no hits, but plenty with "11g",
"11b", and "11a".

Also, all the equipment listed appears to be 802.11b, g, and/or a only.

Sure.  I created the first site, and when I later decided to host it
myself, I copied over the current content, and while there are still
lots of similarities, all new content since that time, of which there is
a fair amount, is only on the new site.

802.11n is still in draft, not expected to be approved until November
2009, so no conforming products are yet on the market.

All that said, these are wikis, and you are welcome to roll up your
sleeves and contribute.  ;)

If the iPhone is really so impressive,
why do iFans keep making excuses for it?
