Belkin is calling its new routers and cards "Pre-N," saying they are based on 802.11n: 802.11n is a proposed standard that promises to deliver higher-throughput and greater coverage area than current generation products. Finalization of the standard isn't expected until 2006 so it's probably difficult to fairly even call this "pre-N". Belkin is using MIMO (multiple input multiple output) technology from Airgo in the products. MIMO uses multiple antennas to send and receive, a method that can extend the range of signals. Belkin expects its products to deliver 45 Mbps of throughput and says the gear will integrate with standard 802.11 equipment.
