I am looking at 802.11ac routers, and I read this from Qualcomm: http://qca.qualcomm.com/thewire/qualcomm-atheros-bringing-forth-a-new-paradigm-for-11ac/ What caught my eye is that they were talking about the 802.11n launch, and the upcoming 802.11ac products, “As a result, this rush to market diminished interoperability and performance in the first products to hit the market.” So, if there was a problem with people launching 802.11n early, and the 11ac certification will not be ready till next year, why are these several router makers jumping the gun and releasing 802.11ac routes now? Then I read here about ‘WiFi Certification’ and why it is important: http://pusz4frog.wordpress.com/2012/08/03/the-newest-802-11ac-routers-dont-have-wi-fi-certification-and-why-you-should-wait-till-q2-of-2013-to-buy-a-11ac-router/ Do these few manufactures think we are dumb enough to buy their non-certified 802.11ac routers? Oh wait, the answer is ‘yes’!! That is why you can buy them now. If this was a problem with 11n, why won’t it be a problem with 11ac? Do you think it is better to wait till early next year to get a WiFi Certified router?
