D-Link updates its Draft N product line to Draft 2.0 of the specification: This is the first announced firmware release of many expected for the existing draft 802.11n or Draft N product lines from companies like Apple, Buffalo, Linksys, and many others. Draft 2.0 is currently being used as the basis of an interim certification for 802.11n by the Wi-Fi Alliance that should see certified products by June.

Just a FYI for something to consider, after checking up on the wireless adapter cards for D-link N Products I noticed that all the D-link specs for the adapter cards specify a 2.4 ghz range of operation and does not include the supported higher 5.8 ghz frequency range that the DLINK DIR-855 Dual band Route will support. Therefore I think the currently released draft gear is gonna require a complete hardware replacement to take advantage of the dual band feature of the N standard. If Apple would have included a 1000 port on their Airport Extremes I would have purchased that product when it was released in April. But, I'm stuck waiting for new improved draft 2.0 dual band gear to be released that comes with 10/100/1000 ports.
