I look after a dozen or so pre-802.11 Aironet units around town; adjacent
units, even with high-gain outdoor directional antennae, need carrier
separation very noticable under full load. If it's just a hobby setup/low
traffic I wouldn't worry. I have a few Wavelan's also, I'm impressed by
their throughput, actually close to 2mbps!
