Abstract or Excerpt: Talks about the trials and tribulations of the implementation of IEEE-802.11b and Bluetooth.

Other technologies are HomeRF, which made up more than 80% of the wireless home networking products sold in 2000, and other formats, such as orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM), which some vendors are trying to get the FCC to allow within the 2.45 Ghz band.
