  • We do have 802.11a&g, but no plans for 802.11n
  • 2.4GHz done, 5GHz just received the AP\'s
  • No plans to deploy 802.11n at this time
  • Corp policy...no wifi
  • at this stage no plans, it could change
  • We\'re going to stay with 802.11g for another year or two
  • With a few hundred network points around the office... who needs wireless?
  • Our vendor was very strong about 802.11n on 2.4 GHz: don\'t do it, it will ruin channel availability and kill coverage. My best guess is that the current rise in 2.4 GHz home 802.11n equipment is causing lots of interference
  • Not to be a \"wired fanboy\", but using wireless in the infrastructure means that a potential network intrusion is only on exploit away. That\'s too much chance to take, when at least wired means never having to worry about who\'s in the parking
  • For now, wireless is verboten; since I went with 802.11a instead of b/g at my last job, I\'d probably push for 5 GHz just because there is less overlap and more channels
  • Dual-band 802.11g/n with AES encryption and Radius authentication.
  • Perhaps we will deploy when spec is final, in the meantime wireless throughput is not critical.
  • Quite happy with 802.11b/g.
  • Air gapped network to Inet only
  • No plans for 802.11n yet. We have a 1.5Mbps connection and very little internal traffic.
  • but it wasn\'t a concious decision - it\'s just what my router supports
  • No plans to deploy any wireless
  • Range can be good and bad. We\'re sticking to 802.11g
  • We have 2.4 ghz wireless for visitors, but its not connected to our corporate LAN and has a seperate WAN connection
  • Did they get around to standarding that pre-N stuff yet?
  • Wireless is consider insecure and will never be deployed. Long live the cable!
  • wireless banned due to frequent local RF DoS by competitor
  • We like the security of wired
  • We have deployed 802.11g and the performance has proven to be adequate. Also, our laptops generally do not have \"n\" capabilities.
  • still using .11a in places
  • Enterprise level 802.11n APs are too expensive at the moment!
  • and only on subnets segregated/firewalled from wired/production nets; I am still seeing way too many internal/production WPA-TKIP deployments at sensitive locations like *municipal courts*
  • Currently have no business justification for the cost of replacing all AP radios, and few n-capable laptops
  • No wireless at all
  • The 2.4 Ghz frequency is over crowded and we have a limited number of channels we can use as it is. With 802.11n using multiple channels for a single link, this will cause even more problems with the already crowded spectrum. It\'ll cause more interferenc
  • Our wifi is in the DMZ, uses WPA2 with client-side certs, and has low bandwidth. No plans to use 802.11n in the near future.
  • We\'re sticking to JTIDS/LINK-16 in the 969–1206 MHz range.
  • Given availability of tools to crack WEP, and some devices inability to use anything stronger, the wireless is off, until those devices are no longer required.
  • Currently the tech is rather expensive and I don\'t need that much bandwidth for my wireless users. If i did, I would go for both frequencies because of compatibility issues with older hardware.
