NEC AtermWR8200N router
Continuing the spate of 802.11n releases, NEC is preparing the AtermWR8200N, a new router supporting the IEEE draft version of 802.11n. Akihabara News notes that the pyramid-styled router should be capable of a full 130 Mbps and have four wired connections in addition to its broadcast capability. Since the extra performance of the router would be wasted below 802.11n, says NEC, the company will also be offering the WL130NC PCMCIA card. No prices or release dates have been published.
