Wireless networking would have to be one of the coolest things to come to maturity over the last year or so. Quicker video cards and larger hard drives are all well and good, but they don't even approach the sheer convenience of being able to run a network around your home or office without expensive in-wall cabling or the old tape-cables-to-the-floor approach. Of course, the traditional problem with the widespread 802.11b 11mb/s standard has been the speed. Minitar have a few components based on the newer 802.11g standard at 54mb/s, which brings it closer to the speed of wired networks - most of which are 100mb/s Ethernet.
