New Wireless "N" Standard might kill B/G networks

The next phase of passing the 802.11N Wireless standard is going into effect shortly. This is good news for use all as it will allow us to have wireless access points that are about 8 times wider ranged then the current G standards. Plus they are much MUCH faster.

But according to the latest drafted design a 802.11N router will all but kill any 802.11 b/g networks within close range of it. That means that 5 of my neighbors would have problems accessing their own wireless networks if I put one in the house. I'm in a single family home, just think about what happens in apartments!
