Dang! No 802.11x how am I going to be able to play real times games
in a frag fest? ;-)

I do have one question, it is my understanding that in an 802.11
b/g environment that the presence of a 802.11b only device causes
everything to fall back to 802.11b. Is this correct?

It may be a slight concern.
