Airgo convinced laptop maker to use its chips: The Airgo third-generation chips have a finite lifetime, as they are not promised or expected to be upgradable to 802.11n. Airgo will have its own 802.11n chips within a few months. I can understand wanting greater range, but Asus laptop buyers will need to purchase 3rd-generation-based routers from Buffalo or NetGear to achieve higher speeds.

For Airgo 3rd-generation-based routers consumers have the choice of Linksys, Buffalo and Netgear so it�s not as bleak as you point out. Also Airgo based tech is far more reliable and backward compatible with b,g stuff.
