While pouring over the spec sheets that most on-line stores have CAN give you a clue about who is rebadging what, it remains very difficult to determine what models from which manufacturers are using a particular chipset.
Specifically, rather simply 'review' products and stating "this access point has an easy to use web interface for set-up" someone should go into the details of what makes the various HW tick. Who is using the PrismII chipset, in what cards? What are the alternatives? Which model # access points have provisons for external antenae? Which have RF sections that put out the legal limit?
Obviously this is MUCH MORE WORK than a "fan boy review", it might require some actual test equipment and interviewing the engineers at the various companies, but I would appreciate such info MUCH MORE. In fact, I'd probably be willing to PAY for it!
Ideas? feedback is welcome!
