The thing is, they will keep trying to find a better standard, and never actually set one that everyone can use! Within 802.11, there is more letters than I can count on one hand (well, they don't all work together), like 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g and numerous "hi-speed" and "hi-range" variations with unofficial characters that large companies have tried to force onto the market.

I went and bought a 802.11a/b/g card to make sure I could always connect, but now there are other, 108Mb/s standards and they are just trying to encourage consumers to buy more expensive's the thinking:

Set standard --> Consumers Buy Goods
Change Standard --> Consumers Buy New Goods to keep up to date
Repeat step 2
Repeat step 2
Repeat step 2
Repeat step 2
Repeat step 2
Repeat step 2

And so on.

Just for more sales and continuous profit...and new products!
