After 7 long years the 802.11n wireless network protocol has finally been given the official thumbs up from the IEEE who are responsible for wifi standards.

For the past few years laptops, wireless network adapters and routers have been available with the draft specification of 802.11n. This rubber stamp now means that consumers who were concerned about taking these new faster wireless technologies can now do so with confidence.

At approximately 6 times the speed of the previous fastest wifi, 802.11g, this new standard will make sharing data over a wireless network a much more enjoyable task.
