Wi-Fi Alliance ditches 802.11 spec codes for consumer-friendly naming scheme

Another reference to remember.

The new naming starts only at WiFi 4 (.n), fair enough the .11g & older is getting on a bit now.

But...

How long will it take before we're told by a punter that their old wifi supports wifi 11 already !

And how many punters know the default config on most boxes will drop to the lowest common standard. (usually .g for the old Wii mum still uses)
