A Company Looks to Wean Computers Off the Wires - New York Times

A Company Looks to Wean Computers Off the Wires - New York Times: "Conventional wired networks that link devices like personal computers to one another and to the Internet have always been the fastest and most reliable connections. And even as high-speed wireless networking, most often dependent on Wi-Fi standards, has become increasingly popular in recent years, electronics specialists agree that the convenience comes at the cost of slower transmission speeds and less reliability.
But Greg Raleigh, chief executive of Airgo Networks in Palo Alto, Calif., said his four-year-old company, which released two earlier generations of high-speed wireless technologies, had 'broken the wire speed barrier' with its latest chips and embedded software. Mr. Raleigh said that the first products using Airgo's new chips - notebook computers, wireless cards, routers and other peripherals - should be commercially available late in the fourth quarter of this year."
