Linksys MIMO (Airgo) versus Netgear RangeMax (Video54)

I blundered across an interesting article in Antenna Systems and Technology magazine (Nov/Dec 2005, and yes, I'm behind on my magazine pile reading).

Why MIMO Matters

compares the performance of Linksys (Airgo) SRX MIMO WRT54GX and WPC54GX verus Netgear RangeMax beam switching (Video54) WPN824 and WPN511. Unfortunately, there's no comparison with a beam forming product.

It's quite an interesting read and method of testing (using a laptop on a turntable). One item that caught my attention was that the Linksys combination allegedly still ran at 5Mbits/sec thruput, going a distance of 206.5ft, through *FIVE* walls (ceiling and floors). I don't believe it, but it may be possible.
