The article offers the author's views regarding the 802.11n wireless local area network standard by the International Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE). The author believes that the IEEE 802.11n standard will not be able to solve the problem of sending video and real-time multimedia as some might have expected. He points out that the standard is inherently unstable and suffers from massive fluctuations in performance caused by interference.
