The high speed wifi is more useful between local devices rather than
interfacing with the internet. For instance, you might want to set up
a media server, sending the video from your PC to TV. http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=547&sec=1
for example. These devices were G, but N are appearing on the market.
I could see wireless network attached storage being draft N.
I think all the wifi routers that have gigabit on the lan are draft N.
That was the driving force behind me going N over G. I do stream
music, but that is find using G. I will eventually get around to
streaming video, so the N will come in useful.
