I’d love to get my paws on this one: A wireless outdoor network bridge that can connect 802.11g devices over a range of up to five miles.

Netgear’s DGFV338 is an excellent multifunction wireless router. A member of the ProSafe business-class product family, the DGFV338 offers reliability, ease of use and security, and even comes with a lifetime warranty.
This device's clean user interface makes it easy to set up; this, and its good feature set, makes the ADSL Barricade g an excellent all-round Internet connection sharing solution.
If you're thinking of combining ADSL with wireless Ethernet, Netgear’s DG824M should most certainly be on your shopping list.
The low-cost WRT54G delivers reasonably high throughput. But it has a relatively short operating range, and its poor performance with 802.11b devices sits poorly with claims of backward compatibility.
This high-speed wireless networking system is more interesting for business users than consumers. Although you can get good throughput at close range with 802.11a kit, it falls off rapidly with distance.
Chipmaker Intersil said Wednesday it has begun developing wireless network equipment that uses both the 802.11g and 802.11a standards. The "Duette" line of LAN (local area network) equipment should debut by the end of April, said Intersil spokesman Ron Paciello. Most wireless network equipment is now based on the 802.11b standard. The 802.11a and 802.11g standards were developed to create wireless networks that are faster than 802.11b. --Ben Charny, Special to ZDNet News
A deal with the Radiocommunications Agency will allow Intel to sell its 802.11a fast wireless LAN (local area network) equipment in the United Kingdom before the end of July. An agreement between Intel and the United Kingdom's spectrum authority should see faster wireless LAN technology on sale in Britain by this summer--even before it has full European approval. Although 802.11a wireless LANs are already on sale in the United States, they were not expected to be available anywhere in Europe until the end of the year because they do not have approval from the regulator, ETSI. European approval of 802.11a is being delayed by the fact that military and satellite networks also use spectrum in the 5GHz range. Intel's agreement with the U.K. regulator, the Radiocommunications Agency, sidesteps this problem by limiting customers to undisputed parts of the 5GHz spectrum. A similar agreement will allow customers in the Netherlands to buy systems there too. To read the full story, visit http://news.zdnet.co.uk/story/0,,t269-s2106341,00.html. --Peter Judge, ZDNet UK
